2x Idaho 5A State Champion Jacob Schubert commits to Whittier (2024)

Fitter and Faster Swim Camps is a proud sponsor of SwimSwam's College Recruiting Channel and all commitment updates. For many, swimming in college is a lifelong dream that they pursue with dedication and determination. Fitter and Faster is proud to honor these athletes and those who have supported them along the way.

Jacob Schubert from Caldwell, Idaho, will swim and study at Whittier College in Southern California starting next fall.

“I loved Coach Jafari and his energy. The on-campus pool was great. I was offered a significant amount of financial aid, which my parents were happy about.”

Schubert swims for Middleton High School and the Nampa Swim Team and specializes in freestyle. He won the 100 freestyle (46.98) and 200 freestyle (1:43.29) at the 2023 Idaho IHSAA 5A State Championship in November, setting personal bests in both events. His best 50 freestyle comes from the 2023 Snake River Swimming Winter Short Course Championships, where he won the 50/100/200 freestyle and placed second in the 100 butterfly. He left the meet with then-best times in the 50/100/200/500 freestyle, 100 backstroke and 100 butterfly.

Schubert had a successful 2023 long course season, improving his personal bests in the 50/100/200 freestyle (24.95/54.85/2:02.38) and 100 butterfly (1:00.83) at the Boise Sectionals and a week later in the 50 freestyle (24.65) and 400/800 freestyle at the Snake River Summer Championships. He started 2024 LCM swimming with a personal best in the 100 butterfly (1:00.51) at the Spring Fling Invitational.

Best SCY times:

  • 50 free – 21.81
  • 100 free – 46,98
  • 100 m butterfly – 51.43
  • 200 m freestyle – 1:43.29

Whittier competes in the NCAA Division III SCIAC. Schubert would have been the Poets' second-fastest 50-, 100- and 200-meter freestyle runner and third-fastest 100-meter flyer last season.
