Patciance Dean Commits to Swim for DII Urbana University

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.

Patciance Dean, a current high school senior from Frankfurt, Indiana, has committed to swim for Division II Urbana University in Ohio. Dean will graduate from Frankfurt High School in spring 2020 and join the Blue Knights’ class of 2024.

Dean is currently a year-round swimmer for the Sugar Creek Swim Club in Crawfordsville, Indiana, and is primarily a sprint freestyle and backstroke swimmer.

“Urbana University is warm and welcoming.  This swim team feels like a family. This is what I was looking for. I hope to grow as a person and a swimmer while attending Urbana.”

With her current best times, Dean would have had a few finals performances at the 2020 Great Midwest & Mountain East Conference Championships with Urbana. She would have placed 22nd in the 100 backstroke (1:04.96) and 23rd in the 100 freestyle (56.89).
