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.

Sonia Vaishnani, a USA Swimming Scholastic All-American from Helotes, Texas, has announced her verbal commitment to Arizona State University and will head to Tempe in the fall of 2023.

“I am extremely thrilled to announce my verbal commitment to further my academic and athletic career at Arizona State University! I could not be more thankful for my family, friends, and all the coaches who have continued to support me. A special thank you to the coaching staff at ASU for such an incredible opportunity and for welcoming me into the Sun Devil family. FORKS UP!!”

She had an outstanding long course season, improving in every single LCM event except the 800 free (which she didn’t swim). At Austin Sectionals, she placed 3rd in the 200 IM and 4th in the 400 free.
