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.

Ali Robertson of Sault Surge Aquatic Team has committed to Southern Illinois for this coming fall. She’s a senior at Sault Area High School in Michigan, on the U.S./Canada border, so she attends high school in the U.S. but trains with a Canadian club team.

Robertson has won Michigan Upper Peninsula HS Championship titles in two individual events the last three seasons, and she holds meet records in the 200 IM, 100 breast and 100 fly. Last season, she would’ve been #4 on the SIU roster in the 100 breast and #5 in the 100 fly.
