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.
Philip Moldovanu of the Wahoos of Wellington in Florida has verbally committed to George Washington for fall 2021. He’s a senior at Wellington High School.
I am beyond excited to announce my commitment to continue my academic and athletic career at The George Washington University! I chose GW because of their exceptional academics and location in our Nation’s beautiful Capital. I’m grateful to my coaches, family, and friends who have supported me throughout this journey. I am excited to join such an amazing swimming program, and can’t wait to get to work. #RaiseHigh
TOP TIMES (SCY)
- 100 free – 46.68
- 200 free – 1:38.82
- 500 free – 4:28.56
- 1650 free – 15:23.27
At the Florida HS 4A State Championships, Moldovanu clocked lifetime bests in the 200 free (1:41.42) and 500 free (4:35.62), finishing fifth in the 500 and eighth in the 200. Since that meet, which was in November, Moldovanu has dropped huge time, getting down to 1:38.82 in the 200 and 4:28.56 in the 500 in December at the Winter 18 & Under Championships.
Moldovanu also hit a 15:23.27 in the 1650 free, a massive improvement from his 16:12.51 pre-pandemic. His performance was good for 10th overall at the 18 & Under Champs among all sites nationally.
This is a major get for George Washington; with his mile time, Moldovanu would’ve won the 1650 free A-10 conference crown last season by over two seconds. At that meet, with his bests, he would’ve also been an A-finalist in both the 200 free and 500 free. Moldovanu’s mile time is also just a few seconds away from GW’s school record.
