Fitter and Faster Swim Camps 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.

Faith Johnson from Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin has announced her verbal commitment to the University of Minnesota’s class of 2026.

“I am beyond thrilled to announce my verbal commitment to swim and study at the University of Minnesota!! I want to thank my family, friends, and coaches for all of their unconditional support. Can’t wait to join this amazing team! GO GOPHERS!!! 〽️〽️”

Currently a junior at Sussex Hamilton High School, Johnson placed 3rd in the 100 fly (54.88) and 3rd in the 100 back (54.85) at the 2020 WIAA Girls Division 1 State Meet. She also swam fly (25.00) on the 11th-place 200 medley relay and contributed a leg (52.72) to the 10th-place 400 free relay. In club swimming, where she represents Rocket Aquatics, Johnson recently notched a pair of PBs in the LCM 100 back and 100 fly. At the 2020 U.S. Open in Indianapolis, she competed in the 100m back and 100m fly and scored a PB in the latter with 1:02.55. A week later she cleared the Olympic Trials standard in the LCM 100 back at the Long Course Time Trials hosted by Waukesha Express Swim Team, going 1:02.26.
