SIU Launches 2022 Recruiting with Verbal from NAC’s Adrienne Raber

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.

Nashville Aquatic Club’s Adrienne Raber has verbally committed to Southern Illinois for fall 2022. She’s a junior at Nashville Christian School.

Well… I’m a Saluki! I am super stoked to announce my verbal commitment to swim and study at Southern Illinois University! I would never have got here without my current teammates and coaches, so thank you all. I also couldn’t have done this without the support of my amazing family and friends. Thank you to the coaches and swimmers at SIU! I can’t wait for the coming years! GO DAWGS! 🐾❤️ #committedsw


  • 50 free – 24.14
  • 100 free – 51.58
  • 200 free – 1:53.23
  • 100 fly – 57.76

Raber is a sprint freestyler and butterflier, and in 2020, she raced to B-final showings at the Tennessee HS (TISCA) State Championships in the 100 free and 100 fly. All of her lifetime bests are from December 2020 or sooner, so she’s on a recent progression curve.

Last season, Raber would’ve been SIU’s #2 100 freestyler  and #4 200 freestyler. At the 2020 MVC Championships, she would’ve made the 100 free A-final, 200 free B-final and 50 free C-final with her current bests.

Raber is the first commit for Southern Illinois’s class of 2026.

If you have a commitment to report, please send an email with a photo (landscape, or horizontal, looks best) and a quote to [email protected].
