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.

McKendree University has added Presley Heitzmann of Magnolia Aquatic Club in Texas for this coming season. Heitzmann is a senior at Magnolia High School.

“I am super excited to finally announce that I will be furthering my academic and athletic career at Mckendree University in the fall. Thank you to my family, friends, coaches, teammates, and everyone else who has been there for me throughout my journey. I love you all so much and… Go Bearcats!!”


  • 100 breast – 1:06.94
  • 200 breast – 2:25.50
  • 200 IM – 2:11.73

At the 2021 Texas HS 5A State Championships, Heitzmann made the 100 breast A-final, going 1:07.17 in the final to take eighth overall. She also split a 30.86 swimming breast on their 200 medley relay, which finished fifth.

The Bearcats finished fourth out of nine teams in the women’s meet at the 2021 GLVC Championships. There, Heitzmann would’ve finished 16th in the 100 breast and 15th in the 200 breast, good for 23 points. She would’ve been McKendree’s second-best breaststroker at both distances this past season.

Heitzmann joins Sarah Gormley and Karley Sonnenberg in McKendree’s class of 2025.
