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.
High school junior Sam Flack from Chattanooga, Tennessee, has announced his verbal commitment to North Carolina State University’s class of 2027.
“I am extremely excited to announce that I will be continuing my academic and athletic career at NC State! I would like to thank my family and friends for putting me in the situation that I am today. I cant wait to join the NC State family! Go pack!!🐺♦️”
Flack swims for Baylor School and Baylor Swim Club, both of which are coached by his father, Dan Flack. He is a Summer Juniors qualifier in the 500 free and a Winter Juniors qualifier in the LCM 200/400/800 free, 200 fly, and 400 IM.
At the 2021 Tennessee TISCA State High School Championships, he won the 500 free by 3.5 seconds (4:26.80) and came in third in the 200 IM (1:52.81). He also contributed legs to the runner-up 200 free relay (20.98) and the state-champion 400 free relay (45.74), all of which helped Baylor win the team title.
Flack had a tremendous long course season. In June, he updated his times in “off” events such as the 50/100 free, 100/200 back, 200 breast, and 100 fly. A month later he competed at the 2021 Southeastern Long Course Championships. He improved his lifetime bests in the 200/400/800/1500 free, 200 fly, and 200/400 IM
