Rachel McCoy Commits to JMU for Fall 2021-22

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.

Rachel McCoy, an incoming high school senior from Mount Airy, Maryland, has committed to swim for Division I James Madison University. McCoy will graduate from Linganore High School in spring 2021 and join the Duke’s class of 2025.

McCoy currently swims for Monocacy Aquatic Club. At the 2020 Maryland Senior Short Course Championships, McCoy placed 7th in the 200 butterfly (2:05.34) and at the 2019 Speedo Champions Series—Christiansburg, she placed 6th in the 200 butterfly (2:04.41).

McCoy also is a Sectionals and Futures qualifier.

I’m very excited to announce my verbal commitment to James Madison University to continue my swimming and academic career. Thank you to my parents, coaches and teammates who got me here. Go Dukes! 💜💛”

This year at the 2020 CAA Swimming and Diving Championships with the Dukes, McCoy would have placed 7th in the 200 butterfly (2:03.93) and 11th in the 100 butterfly (56.26) with her current best times.

With her time in the 200 butterfly, McCoy would have been JMU’s second best 200 butterfly swimmer at this meet.
