2-Sport Athlete Jared Mindek Sends Verbal Commitment to Tampa for Swimming

Fitter and Faster Swim Camps is the proud sponsor of SwimSwam’s College Recruiting Channel and all commitment 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 supported them on their journey.

Youngstown, Ohio native Jared Mindek has committed to swim for the University of Tampa next fall. He will join Calvin Sandefer, Connor Kazmi, and Nick Piscitelli in the class of 2025.

“I am beyond excited to announce my commitment to further my academic and swimming career at the University of Tampa. I want to thank my family, coaches and friends who have helped me achieve this opportunity. Go Spartans!!”

Mindek is a senior at Howland High School where he is on the varsity swim team and plays baseball. Mindek became the first Tiger in school history to capture a state title in swimming when he won the 100 breast at the 2021 OHSAA Division II State Meet in February. Mindek went 56.77 to win by 3 hundredths. He also placed 7th in the 200 IM with a lifetime-best time of 1:56.82, scoring all of Howland’s 32 points to place 22nd in the team race.

Mindek does his club swimming with Penguin Swimming in Youngstown. He recently won the 100 breast (56.94) and took 3rd in the 200 breast (2:05.52) at the 2021 Lake Erie Senior Championships. He left the meet with PBs in the 50 free, 100 back, 200 breast, and 400 IM.

Best SCY times:

  • 100 breast – 56.24
  • 200 breast – 2:05.52
  • 200 IM – 1:56.82
  • 400 IM – 4:15.70
  • 50 free – 23.26
  • 100 back – 55.30

Mindek’s best times would have scored in the A final of the 100 breast and the B final of the 200 breast at the 2020 Sunshine State Conference Championships.
