Fitter and Faster Swim Clinics 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.
Sara Kate Reynolds of Danville, Virginia, has announced her commitment to study and swim at Rhodes College. Rhodes is a DIII Southern Athletic Association school located in Memphis, Tennessee.
Reynolds says of her decision:
“I’m super excited to announce my commitment to further my education and athletic career at Rhodes College! Thank you to my family, friends, and coaches for their endless love and support, and to everyone at Rhodes who helped me realize that there is no better place for me.”
Reynolds is a 2019 graduate of The Carlisle School of Martinsville, VA, where she helped to start a formal swim team so those interested in the sport wouldn’t have to swim as individuals. She was a 12-time Virginia Independent Schools Athletic Association State Championships qualifier and a former conference champion in the 100 back and fly events. Reynolds is also a former member of the Greensboro Community YMCA swim team, based in North Carolina. As a Mako, she was a YMCA Regional Level qualifier.
Reynolds will be following the footsteps of former GCY swimmer Jon Pulaski (rising junior) in committing to Rhodes. Pulaski placed fifth in the 1650 free at the 2019 SAA Championships with a 16:46.73. If Reynolds were a part of the 2018-2019 squad, she would have been 11th on the team in the 100 back and 200 back, as well as seventh in the 100 fly.
Top SCY times:
- 100 back = 1:06.50
- 200 back = 2:25.86
- 100 fly = 1:05.26
