York YMCA Freestyler Logan McFadden Verbally Commits to West Virginia

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.

Logan McFadden, who hails from New Freedom, Pennsylvania, has announced his verbal commitment to West Virginia University for 2020-21. He’ll join future teammates Jared Carter and Joe Schaefer in the class of 2024.

“I am beyond excited to announce my verbal commitment to continue my academic & athletic career at West Virginal University! Thank you to everybody who has helped me reach this point in my life. Let’s go Mountaineers!”

McFadden specializes in mid-distance and distance freestyle. He is a senior at Susquehannock High School in Glen Rock, PA, and swims year-round for York YMCA. He is coming off a very successful long-course season that saw him hit lifetime bests in the 50/100/200/300/400/800/1500 free and 200 fly at 2019 YMCA Long Course National Championships. He took 5th in the 200m free (1:55.40), 4th in the 400 (4:05.28), 5th in the 800 (8:33.99), 5th in the 1500 (16:16.40), and 16th in the 200 fly (2:11.19 in prelims). At Short Course YNats last April, McFadden improved his 50/200/1000 free and 100 fly times. He scored points in the 200 free (12th), 500 free (18th), 1000 free (16th), and 1650 free (14th).

Top SCY times:

  • 1650 free – 15:43.87
  • 1000 free – 9:22.44
  • 500 free – 4:32.13
  • 200 free – 1:39.73

West Virginia was light in distance freestylers last year, so McFadden and Carter, whose times are similar, will be a good addition to the roster. The pair will have two years in Morgantown with West Virginia’s top distance scorer from last season, sophomore Tom Hubbard and one with Max Gustafson.
