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.
Gahanna, Ohio, native Chad Kegelmayer is staying in state to continue his swimming career on the collegiate stage, committing to Division II Notre Dame College (Ohio) for the fall of 2020.
“I am super excited to announce my verbal commitment to continue my academic and swimming career at the collegiate division II level,” Kegelmayer said. “I want to thank all of my family, friends, and coaches who have helped me get to this point. Go Falcons!”
Kegelmayer was seventh in the 100 breast (1:06.47) and 12th in the 200 IM (2:14.57) at the Ohio High School Athletic Association Central, East and Southeast District Division II Championships. He also was a member of Columbus Bishop Hartley High School’s third place 200 medley relay and 10th place 400 free relay teams.
At the 2018 District meet, Kegelmayer was 13th in the 200 free (1:58.31) and 16th in the 100 breast (1:08.24) at the 2018 District meet. He also was part of the fifth place 200 medley relay and 12th place 200 free relay teams.
Kegelmayer also has swum for Capital City Swimming in Columbus, Ohio, and Gahanna YMCA Gators in Gahanna, Ohio.
