Open Water and Distance Specialist Aidan Pflieger Commits to Nova S’eastern

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.

Aidan Pflieger from Reno, Nevada will head to Fort Lauderdale, Florida in the fall of 2022 to swim and study at Nova Southeastern University.

“I am beyond excited to announce my commitment to swim and study marine science at Nova Southeastern University!  I would like to thank my family, friends, and coaches who have supported me along the way! Fins Up!”

Pflieger is a senior at Reno High School. He swims year-round with Reno Aquatic Club and specializes in distance freestyle and open water racing. He competed at 2021 USA Open Water Junior Nationals and at the 2022 USA Swimming National Championship. He placed 22nd in the men’s 10K at the latter, finishing 22nd in 2:24:58.

So far this year, he has notched PBs in the SCY 1650 free, 200 breast, 100/200 fly, and 400 IM.
