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.

Lucy Reber, a junior at Hudson High School in Hudson, Ohio, has verbally committed to the University of Kentucky for 2022-23 and beyond.

“I am beyond excited to announce my verbal commitment to further my academic and athletic career at the University of Kentucky! Thank you to my family, coaches, teammates, and friends for helping me through this process! Can’t wait to be part of such an amazing program!!! Go cats😼💙”

Reber swims year-round with Cleveland Swim Institute. She is a Winter Juniors qualifier in the 200 back and a Futures qualifier in the 100/200 breast and 200/400 IM.

She also swam the 100 breast (7th) and 100 back (9th). In November, she notched lifetime bests in the 100 breast, 50 free, and 100 free at Don’t Give Up the Ship Invitational.
