Orinda Aquatics’ Emmie Appl Commits to Swim for DIII Pomona-Pitzer College

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.

Emmie Appl, a current high school senior from Orinda, California, has committed to swim for Division III Pomona-Pitzer College. Appl will graduate from The College Preparatory School in spring 2020 and join the Sagehens’ class of 2024.

Appl is currently a year-round swimmer for Orinda Aquatics and also swims for The College Preparatory School team. Appl placed 3rd in the 100m breaststroke at Far Westerns this past summer and placed 2nd in the 200 IM at the WCAB Senior Winter Championships.

“I am thrilled to announce my commitment to swim and study at Pomona College. The positive energy that I felt from the team while I was on campus, as well as the high academic standards, made it easy to choose Pomona. I can’t wait to continue my education in such a supportive environment full of compassionate people. Go Hens!”

With her current best times, Appl would have had multiple finals performances at the 2019 SCIAC Championships. Most notably, she would have placed 4th in the 200 breaststroke (2:20.99), 6th in the 200 IM (2:09.25) and 7th in the 100 breaststroke (1:05.78).
