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.

Ellis Bohon of Chaparral High School and Scottsdale Aquatic Club in Scottsdale, Arizona, has announced his verbal commitment to swim for Grand Canyon University in the fall of 2020. A distance freestyler and IMer, Bohon has career fastest times in the 500-yard freestyle, 400 yard IM, and 1,650-yard freestyle that would have qualified him for the ‘A’ final in all three events.

At the Speedo Sectionals meet in Phoenix back in March, Bohon won the 1,000-yard freestyle (9:16.03) while taking 3rd place in the 500-yard freestyle (4:29.07) and 4th place in the 1,650-yard freestyle (15:50.24). During his high school season, the junior won the 500-yard freestyle (4:35.33) and took 6th place in the 200 yard IM (1:56.20) at the Arizona Division II State Championship meet.

Best Times in Yards:

  • 500 free – 4:29.07
  • 1650 free – 15:33.78
  • 400 IM – 3:56.93
  • 200 breast – 2:05.45

Bohon’s times would have been the second-fastest time on the team in the 500-yard freestyle behind then senior Daniil Antipov as well as the second-fastest time on the team in the 400 yard IM and 1,650-yard freestyle. Bohon is the first confirmed commit for the Antelopes’ class of 2024.
