Winter Junior National Finalist Christopher Roling Commits to UCSB for 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.

Christopher Roling, a current high school senior from Santa Clara, California, has verbally committed to swim for the University of California, Santa Barbara. Roling will graduate from Bellarmine Prep High School in May 2020 and join the Gaucho’s class of 2024.

Roling is a current year-round swimmer for Santa Clara Swim Club. He was a finalist at Speedo Winter Junior Championships – West along with being a 2018 and 2019 USA Swimming All-American.

“I am very excited to announce my commitment to UCSB. I would like to thank my family, coaches, and friends for supporting me throughout this process. I cannot wait to be a part of the Gaucho family. Olé!”

With his current best times, Roling would have had multiple finals appearances at the MPSF Championships this year. Most notably, Roling would have placed 4th in the 200 butterfly (1:47.08).

At this meet, the Gauchos placed 2nd as a team.

Roling will begin his swimming career at the University of California, Santa Barbara beginning fall 2020.
