Summer Juniors B-Finalist Micah Chambers Commits to Tennessee

Fitter and Faster Swim Clinics 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.

Shortly after committing to Missouri State in the fall, USA Swimming Junior National Championship finalist Micah Chambers changed his commitment to the University of Tennessee.

Chambers, who is homeschooled, lives in Enid, Oklahoma where he swimsw for the Aquatic Club of Enid (ACE). At the Oklahoma Swimming Short Course Championships (the USA Swimming meet), he finished in the top 3 of 4 different events: the 100 free, 100 fly, 200 free, and 100 back.

At the 2019 Speedo Junior National Championships in Stanford, California he qualified 13th out of prelims of the 50 meter free with a morning time of 23.62. He wound up 16th in finals of that race.

Best Times in Yards:

  • 50 free – 20.21
  • 100 free – 45.71
  • 100 back – 50.10
  • 100 fly – 49.18

After his change of commitment in November, Chambers swam new lifetime bests in both the 100 free (.43 second drop) and 100 fly (.49 second drop) at the Speedo Winter Junior Championships – West. The loss for Missouri State, where he would have been a program-changing commitment, is a big pickup for Tennessee, which will lose 3 of their top 4 100 butterfliers at the end of this season. The Volunteers have done a lot in the class of 2020 to address that butterfly problem. In addition to Chambers, they’ve added commitments from Jordan Tiffany (47.3/1:44.2), Jacob McDonald (49.0/1:50.3), Jack Gillespie (48.5/1:50.2), Harrison Lierz (49.2), and Thomas Horne (49.2/1:47.0).
