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.
Alexander Turney from Salt Lake City, Utah has announced his verbal commitment to the University of Texas for 2022-23.
“I’m proud to announce that I have verbally committed to swim and study at the University of Texas. Thank you to all my friends, family, and coaches who have supported me through my swimming career. Hook ‘em!🤠🤘”
A senior at Olympus High School, Turney is the Utah High School state record-holder in the 100 breast, a mark he set twice at the 2021 UHSAA 5A Swimming and Diving Championships. In prelims, he hit a 55.86 to down Nathan Bramhall’s 5A championship mark of 57.54 from 2013, as well as Tanner Nelson’s overall Utah high school record (56.34). In finals, he lowered his new mark to 55.60, winning the event by nearly half a body length. He also placed 2nd in the 100 fly (51.83), and swam fly (22.33) on the winning 200 medley relay, all of which helped Olympus retain their team title.
Turney has done most of his club swimming with Olympus Aquatics, but his family lived in Florida for much of the last year and he swam for Clearwater Aquatic Team over the summer. He won the 100/200 breast at Phoenix Sectionals in March, notching PBs in both events. A month later, he competed at St. George Sectionals and added new times in the 50 free, 100 fly, and 200 IM.

- 100 breast – 55.15

- 100 fly – 51.50
