Fahy commits to Widener for swimming.

Kaitlyn Fahy (‘23)  has committed to Widener University to continue her academic and swimming career. She started swimming at only 18 months old and competing at 7 years old to continue the family legacy in the field. Fahy has swam for Jersey Wahoos, Old Orchard, and of course, the East Girls Swim Team. 

Fahy’s swim career began watching many of her family members competing and winning awards for their successes. She decided to launch her own career in swimming because it was a way to connect to the school while making new friends. 

“Many of the friends I have made [on this team] I would consider family.” Says Fahy. 

Fahy has been very successful in her swimming career, winning the State Championship for the East team in both her freshman and senior years and winning the Cherry Bowl event in 2018 in the 50 freestyle event. 

Swimming has helped Fahy to grow as a dedicated and hardworking person, not only in the pool. It has taught her how to stay positive and always be hopeful for what the future might bring. Additionally, it has proven the value of having true friends by your side as a support system. 

Choosing Widener was not hard, as it has a fantastic nursing program and supportive swim team, a deal breaker for Fahy. 

Becoming a swimmer was not a hard decision for Fahy. Her love for the sport is evident through her commitment to the team, and now her commitment to Widener University. As Fahy begins this new chapter, we wish you the best of luck.
