Summer Junior Qualifier Nicky Glenn Commits to Cal Poly
Fitter and Faster Swim Camps is the proud sponsor of SwimSwam’s College Recruiting Channel and all Pledge 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 have supported them along their journey.
Nicky Glenn from Mill Valley, Calif., has chosen to swim and study at California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo next fall.
“I’m super excited to announce my commitment to continue my academic and swimming career at Cal Poly SLO! Special thanks to my family, friends and coaches for their endless support over the years! Come on Mustangs!
A free sprint specialist, Glenn is in his final year at Tamalpais High School. He recently placed 6th in the 50m freestyle (20.69) and 4th in the 100m freestyle (45.87), swam flyweight (22.32) in the 200 medley relay 5th place and anchored the 200 relay free (20.28) at the 2022 CIF-Nord Coastal Section Swimming and Diving Championship Meeting in early May.
Glenn swims year round with Orinda Aquatics. In March, he competed in the Carlsbad Sectionals, where he earned lifetime best records in the 50 free and 100 free (which he later improved to the NCS Championships), placing 4th and 26th in the respective finals. He also swam the 100 backstroke.
Last summer, he updated all of his LCM times between Roseville Sectionals and Arena Grand Challenge. These include the 50/100/200 free, 100 back, 100 chest, and 100 fly.
Best SCY times:
- 50 free – 20.43
- 100 free – 45.87
- 50 back – 25.72
- 100 back – 52.38
- 100 chest – 59.26
- 100 volleys – 52.61
Glenn will join Trevor Yargeau and Will Newlands in the Mustangs class of 2026. His 50 frees would have scored in the B final at this year’s MPSF Championships, while his 100 frees would have been less than a tenth away from securing a second swimming. Cal Poly finished fifth out of seven teams in the men’s competition.
