Fitch Flip-Turns into the Record Books


While at Williston, David Fitch ’17 seemed to break a record every time he got into the pool, and his streak continues in college. In March, he broke two records during the NCAA Division III Swimming and Diving Championship for the Kenyon College Lords. First, he won the 100-yard butterfly in NCAA-record time, using an unorthodox flip turn. He also touched the wall first during the 100-yard backstroke, setting a new Kenyon record. The efforts garnered him the NCAA Division III Men’s Swimmer of the Year Award. “It’s rare to have a swimmer of David’s caliber,” says Athletic Director Mark Conroy. “We can’t wait to see what he does next!”
