Versatile Ella Myers (2022) Signs NLI to Swim at Texas

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.

Ella Myers from Rockville, Maryland, has signed a National Letter of Intent with the University of Texas and will head to Austin next fall after graduating from Holton-Arms School in the class of 2022. She announced her verbal commitment last spring on social media:

“Beyond excited and blessed to announce my verbal commitment to pursue my academic and swim career at the University of Texas!! I am so grateful for God, my family, friends, and coaches who have supported me throughout the years to get me here. Can’t wait to be a longhorn! 🤘🧡#HOOKEM 🧡🤘”

Myers swims with Nation’s Capital Swim Club. A USA Swimming Scholastic All-American, she specializes in mid-distance free, back, fly, and IM. In December, she competed at U.S. Open in LCM and the NCAP Invitational in SCY. At the first, she swam the 400 free, 200 fly, and 400 IM – finaling in the 400 IM. At the NCAP Invite a week later, she competed in the 100 free, 100 back, 200 fly, and 200 IM and finaled in everything but the 100 free. Most of her best LCM times come from April’s TAC Titans LC Premier and TYR 18&U Spring Cup in Richmond. She has a Winter U.S. Open cut in the 400 IM (4:56.78) and a Winter Juniors cut in the 400 free, 200 fly, and 200 IM.

Her best SCY times include:

  • 400 IM – 4:18.73

  • 1000 free – 10:00.34
