Twins Mason and Jaden Herbet Commit to Florida State (2020)

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.

Winter Springs, Florida twins Mason and Jaden Hebert have both committed to swim at Florida State University beginning in the fall of 2020. Mason will join the Florida State men, while Jaden will join the women’s program.

Both are accomplished swimmers and Florida 4A High School State Championship finalists, though Mason is a bit more versatile than his sister is.

Representing Oviedo High School, Mason Herbet was a Florida 4A regional champion in the 100 yard breaststroke and went on to place 3rd in both the 100 breast and 100 fly at the 2019 Florida 4A High School State Championship meet. He was the only swimmer to even earn a top-16 second swim in both of those events at the meet, and only one other swimmer tried that double (Jose Hermida, who was 19th in the 100 breast and 18th in the 100 fly).

Jaden, meanwhile, finished 6th in the 100 fly and was disqualified in the final of her best event, the 100 back, where she entered finals as the top qualifier. She also swam on title-winning Oviedo teams in the 200 and 400 yard free relays. In the former, the relay included her younger sister, freshman Kaylin, on the leadoff leg.

Both the Oviedo High School boys and girls were 4A (big school) state champions last season in Florida.
