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.
Courtney Niemann, a current high school senior from Sugar Hill, Georgia, has committed to swim for Division I Georgia Southern University. Niemann will graduate from North Gwinnett High School in spring 2020 and join the Eagles’ class of 2024.
Niemann is currently a year-round swimmer for Swim Atlanta (Lawrenceville) along with swimming for her high school team at North Gwinnett.
This month at the 2020 GHSA 6-7A State Championships, Niemann placed 3rd in the 200 IM (2:06.57) and 5th in the 100 breaststroke (1:06.22).
“So excited and blessed to announce my commitment to swim and further my education at Georgia Southern University. Thank you so much to my family, friends, and coaches who have helped me get to this point!! Can’t wait to be an eagle!! #GATA #hailsouthern 💙💛🦅”
With her current best times, Niemann would have had a couple finals performances at the 2020 CCSA Championships with Georgia Southern. Most notably, she would have placed 7th in the 100 breaststroke (1:04.62).
