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.
Joshua Brown, a high school senior from Winter Park, Florida, has committed to swim for Division I Villanova University. Brown will graduate from Lake Highland Prep School in spring 2021 join the Wildcats’ class of 2025.
Brown is a current swimmer for Highlander Aquatics where he is a Futures qualifier. At the 2020 FHSAA 1A State Championships, Brown placed 2nd in the 500 freestyle (4:28.77) and 7th in the 200 freestyle (1:40.76).
“I am thrilled to share my verbal commitment to Villanova University. I am grateful to coaches Rick, Conor and Nate for believing in me, and giving me the chance to be part of their swim team next season. I can’t wait to see what I can achieve both academically and in the pool at NOVA. A huge thanks to Coach Todd for pushing me this far, and to my family and teammates for encouraging and supporting me poolside. Go Wildcats!”
Top SCY Times
- 200 freestyle – 23.86
- 500 freestyle – 52.32
- 1650 freestyle – 15:48.49
At the 2020 Big East Championships with the Wildcats, Brown would have had multiple finals performances with his current best times. He would have placed 4th in the 500 freestyle (4:28.77), 6th in the 200 freestyle (1:40.50) and 7th in the 1650 freestyle (15:48.49).
With these times, Brown would have been the fastest 200 and 500 freestyle swimmer for Villanova at this meet.
At the Big East Championships, the Villanova men placed 4th as a team and received CSCAA Scholar All-America team status.
