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.
IM and free specialist Silas Crosby has committed to swim at the University of North Carolina in Wilmington. He was previously committed to Army West Point. Crosby swims club at Team Greenville and he is a senior at Saint Joseph’s Catholic School.
After further consideration, I’m proud to announce my verbal commitment to continue my academic and athletic career at the University of North Carolina, Wilmington! I want to thank my family, friends, coaches, and anyone else who contributed to my progress and allowed me to reach this point in my career. I also want to thank the coaches at UNCW for giving me this incredible opportunity. Go Seahawks 🦅🦅
Top SCY Times:
- 200 IM – 1:50.45
- 400 IM – 3:55.39
- 200 breast – 2:02.71
- 200 free – 1:40.04
- 1000 free – 9:21.91
- 1650 free – 15:38.72
The UNC-Wilmington men’s team will welcome Crosby to the team beginning in the fall of 2021. His times will make him a top recruit, especially as his best times are close to the school records. His 400 IM time is 0.28 slower than the current record, which was set by William Ryan in 2016. Additionally, he is about 4 seconds off of the school record in the 1650 and 0.17 seconds off in the 1000, both of which were set by Luke Murphy in 2009.
Crosby would have earned a silver medal in the 1650 free at the 2020 Colonial Athletic Association Championships. He also would have earned a spot in the A-finals of the 200 and 400 IM.
