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.
Claire Epperson, a current high school senior from Germantown, Tennessee, has committed to swim for Division III Kenyon College. Epperson will graduate from Saint Georges High School in spring 2020 and join the Lords and Ladies’ class of 2024.
Epperson is currently a year-round swimmer for Memphis Tiger Swim Club and also swims for the Saint Georges High School team.
“I’m so excited to announce my commitment to swim at Kenyon College! I think it is a great fit academically, and I’ve enjoyed getting to know the team and coaches Jess, Tracy and Fernando. Thank you to all of my coaches, my parents and my teammates for supporting me throughout my swim career. I can’t wait for the next four years! Go Lords and Ladies!”
With her current best times, Epperson would have had multiple finals performances with Kenyon at the 2020 NCAC Championships. Epperson would have placed 5th in the 200 butterfly (2:06.07) and 6th in the 500 freestyle (5:02.24), 1650 freestyle (17:31.27) and the 200 freestyle (1:54.62).
In the 500 freestyle, Kenyon senior Kendall Vanderhoof was the NCAC Champion with a time of 4:55.80, and Kenyon swimmers Claire Murray, Kendall Vanderhoof and Gail Anderson swept the top three spots in the 1650 freestyle.
