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.
Taryn Wisner, a current high school senior from Syracuse, New York, has committed to swim for Division III Denison University. Wisner will graduate from high school in spring 2021 join the Big Red’s class of 2025. Wisner comes from a long line of collegiate swimmers. Her mom was a Division III All-American swimmer at Ithaca, her dad was a two-time Big Ten Champion at Iowa, and her older brother Kai Wisner swims for UMBC.
She will be the fourth swimmer from her team to swim for Denison, following in the footsteps of now-graduated James Baker, who is studying on an NCAA post-graduate scholarship; rising sophomore and 2020 All-American Savannah Sargent; and Kyle Verstandig.
She is a current swimmer for the Victor Swim Club in upstate New York. At the 2019 Niagara Swimming Long Course Championships, Wisner was champion in the 800 LCM freestyle (9:22.64) and 400 LCM freestyle (4:31.04) and placed 2nd in the 1500 LCM freestyle (18:03.30). At the 2018 Speedo Champions Series – North – Ithaca, she placed 4th in the 500 freestyle (4:56.17).
Wisner is also a Futures and Winter Juniors qualifier.
