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.

Upper Arlington High School senior Avery Catalano has verbally committed to swim at Miami University in Ohio. The sprinter, who swims club at Upper Arlington Swim Club, will join Miami’s class of 2026.

“I am very excited to announce my commitment to swim and study at Miami University! Huge thanks to my family, coaches, friends and teammates who made this happen. I can’t wait to be a part of this team!”

At the Central, East & Southeast District Meet in Ohio, Catalano placed fourth in the 100 and 200 freestyle.

Catalano has Futures cuts in the 50 and 100 freestyle, and the 100 breaststroke. Her best short course times are:

Miami University is a Division I school in the Mid-American Conference (MAC). At the 2021 MAC women’s swimming and diving championships, Miami University placed third out of eight teams. At the meet and with her best times, Catalano would have made B finals in the 100 and 200 freestyle.

Catalano will join Maggie Patterson, Mady Bachmeier, Julia Waechter, Maddie Zehr, Ashley Sego, Mollie Lumsden, Jenna Halliday, and Madison Saldanha at Miami in fall 2022.
