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.
Jack Gibson, a current high school senior from Fairfax Station, Virginia, has committed to swim for Division I University of Delaware under head coach Pablo Marmolejo. Gibson will graduate from Lake Braddock High School in spring 2020 and join the Blue Hen’s class of 2024.
Gibson is a current swimmer for Machine Aquatics. At the 2020 Virginia High School League Class 6A State Championships, Gibson placed 7th in the 100 breaststroke (58.33) and placed 6th in the 400 IM (4:12.09) at the 2019 Speedo Champion Series—Christiansburg. He is also a Futures and spring Junior Nationals qualifier.
“I am excited to announce my commitment to swim and study at the University of Delaware. I knew UDEL was the perfect fit for me once I stepped on campus. I love the supportive and welcoming environment of the team and am so impressed with the superb academic and athletic programs, the beautiful campus and the outstanding facilities. I can’t wait to be a Blue Hen. Thank you to my teammates, teachers, coaches, friends and family that have helped make this all possible. Go Blue Hens!”
Gibson would have had multiple finals performances at the 2020 CAA Swimming and Diving Championships with his current best times. Most notably, he would have placed 12th in the 200 breaststroke and 13th in the 400 IM.
With these times, Gibson would have been the Blue Hen’s fastest 400 IM’er and 3rd fastest 200 breaststroker at the meet.
