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.
Margaret McPherson of Indianapolis, Indiana has announced her verbal commitment to Saint Louis University. McPherson swims for Washington Township Swim Club and attends North Central High School.
A versatile swimmer, McPherson has seen rapid improvements in her times over the last season. In 2018 her best time in the 200 back was a 2:07.37. This season she has already taken over three seconds off of that, going a 2:04.10 in November. Last spring she qualified for the 2019 IHSAA (Indiana high school) Girls State Championship in both the 100 free (52.74) and 100 back (57.07), finishing as second alternate in the back. She also competed at the Futures Championships-Greensboro last summer, where she swam best times in the 100 fly and 200 back.
“I am so incredibly excited to announce my verbal commitment to continue my academic and athletic career at St. Louis University! I can’t thank my family, friends and coaches enough for the endless amount of support they have given me! I can’t wait to be a Billiken!”
