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.
Timo Paisley of San Clemente, CA has announced his decision to swim for Florida Atlantic University beginning in the 2021-2022 season. He will graduate from San Clemente High School in the spring of 2021. Paisley swims year-round for San Clemente Aquatics under the direction of head coach Jason York.
I’m very excited and blessed to announce my verbal commitment to FAU, where I will continue my academic and athletic career. Thank you for my family, friends, teammates, and coaches who have supported my through the years!
Paisley has qualified for the 2021 USA Swimming Futures Championships in the 200-yard free and the 400-yard and meter IM. He met the qualifying standard for the 400y IM and 400m IM in mid-March of 2021. The ST ASC Spring Championship was the first competition he attended in 2021. The meet was formatted so that prelims were swum in SCY and finals were swum in LCM. He competed in the 500m free, the 1500m free, and the 400y IM. He finished 1st in both the 500 and 1500, and he went into the finals heats of the 400 IM as the top seed. In finals, he dropped to second.
Top SCY Times:
- 200 free – 1:41.01
- 500 free – 4:30.62
- 1000 free – 9:41.54
- 1650 free – 16:17.71
- 200 IM – 1:57.10
- 400 IM – 4:01.22
The Florida Atlantic men’s team finished second at the 2021 CCSA Men’s Championships. Senior Josh Fountain was named Most Outstanding Swimmer of the Meet, senior Logan Downey was Most Outstanding Diver of the Meet, and Coach Ryan McIntire was the CCSA Diving Coach of the Year.
Paisley’s best times would have placed him in the A-finals of the 200 free and 400 IM, and he would have been the top finisher in the 500 free.
