NEW COMMIT: Boca Raton, Fla. native Shayna Fetes has announced her intention to swim for Auburn University beginning in the fall of 2019.

Fetes does her club swimming with Saint Andrew’s Aquatics where she is a three-time Junior National qualifier with a Senior National cut in the 200 breast. At Speedo Juniors East in December, she recorded three personal bests and placed tenth in the 200 breast (2:15.65). She was the runner-up in the 100m breast (1:14.76) at Gainesville Speedo Sectionals and recently competed at Junior Nationals in August.

Representing Saint Andrews School, Fetes is a four-time finalist at the FHSAA 1A State Championships. As a junior, Fetes won the 100 breast by nearly two seconds in a lifetime best of 1:02.40 in addition to placing sixth in the 200 IM (2:04.04). She also split 28.86 on the breaststroke leg to help her team to a runner-up finish in the 4×50 medley relay. Fetes has earned NISCA All-American and USA Swimming Scholastic All-American honors for her efforts.

She told Swimming World:

“I’m very excited to announce my verbal commitment to swim and study at Auburn University. I would like to thank my family, coaches, and teammates for the support that has gotten me to this point! I chose Auburn because of the sense of tradition and family, and the AU Family is one I can not wait to be apart of!! War Damn Eagle!!”

Her best times include:

  • 100 breast – 1:02.40
  • 200 breast – 2:15.65
  • 200 IM – 2:03.07
  • 400 IM – 4:25.39

Her coach, Sid Cassidy, told us:

“Shayna is absolutely a joy to coach. She is a true leader and inspires her teammates and coaches alike. She is one of the most focused and determined athletes I have ever been associated with and she does it every day with a smile on her face and a grind in her heart. She refuses to accept anything less than giving her best and I know Coach Gary Taylor and all of the Auburn faithful will be thrilled to have this pocket battleship in their arsenal for the next four years.”

Fetes will be extremely valuable to the Tigers’ breaststroke group when she arrives on campus for the 2019-20 season. She will have two years to train with top returning Auburn breaststroker Carly Cummings, who scored in the B-final of both distances at the 2018 SEC Championships.
