NISCA Public School NR-holder Katie McClintock (2021) Sends Verbal to Wisconsin

Fitter and Faster Swim Clinics is the proud sponsor of SwimSwam’s College Recruiting Channel and all commitment news. For many, swimming in college is a lifelong dream that is pursued with dedication and determination. Fitter and Faster is proud to honor these athletes and those who supported them on their journey.

Katie McClintock, a two-time USA Swimming Scholastic All-American from Linwood, New Jersey, has announced her verbal commitment to the University of Wisconsin for 2021-22.

“I am blessed to announce my verbal commitment to further my swimming and academics at the University of Wisconsin-Madison!! Thank you to my family, friends, coaches and teammates for supporting me along the way. So excited to be a Badger!! ❤️❤️🤘🏼”

As a sophomore at Mainland Regional High School last January, McClintock broke the NISCA Public High School National Record in the 200 short course meters IM while swimming at the Cape Atlantic League Championships at Atlantic City High School. Her time of 2:15.94 took 12. off the old record of 2:16.06 that had been swum by Kaitlin Pawlowicz of Oakton High in Virginia in 2011. She also won the 100 breast in a CAL meet-record time of 1:12.49. In SCY, she won the 200 IM (2:00.88) and was runner-up in the 100 back (55.58) at the New Jersey High School Meet of Champions in March.

McClintock swims year-round for Egg Harbor Township Seahawks. She improved her lifetime bests in a number of events this summer, including 100 breast (1:13.20), 200 breast (2:34.54), 100 back (1:05.44), 200 back (2:20.31), 200 IM (2:21.92), 400 IM (4:58.22), 200 fly (2:31.24), and 400 free (4:32.82). She competed at Speedo Junior Nationals in the 100/200 breast and 200/400 IM and finished 7th in the 200 breast. A month earlier she had won the 200 breast with a PB at Middle Atlantic LSC Championships. She also took 3rd in the 100 breast and 200 IM, 4th in the 200 back, and 5th in the 400 IM. At the SCY version of the LSC championships, she won the 100 back, was runner-up in the 200 back, 200 breast, 200 IM, and 400 IM and was 4th in the 100 breast.

Top SCY times:

  • 200 IM – 2:00.30
  • 400 IM – 4:16.20
  • 100 breast – 1:02.47
  • 200 breast – 2:13.57
  • 100 back – 55.23
  • 200 back – 1:59.59

Abby Carlson, Mackenzie McConagha, and Natalie Bercutt have also verbally committed to the Wisconsin class of 2025. McClintock will be an immediate contributor for the Badgers. She would have scored in the B final of the 400 IM and the C finals of the 200 breast and 200 IM at 2019 B1G Championships.

B1G Time

B1G looking tough in the next few years. The top 6 will significantly separate themselves from the rest. MI, IU, MN, OSU, NW, WI (in no particular order) will be light years ahead of the next. PU, PSU, IA, etc have a lot of work to do to catch these other teams locking down big time recruits.

Don’t sleep on Yuri and Wisconsin. He is settling in and doing an amazing job. McClintock is another awesome swimmer he has added to the fold.
