Plymouth Whitemarsh High School senior Nick Fiddler, the high scorer on the Colonials swimming team the past two seasons, has announced his intention to swim for Villanova University.
Fiddler, a Distinguished Honor Roll student, placed eighth at the District One Championships and 10th at the PIAA Championships in the 100-yard butterfly last season. He was sixth in the district and 25th in the state in the same event as a sophomore. He finished second, third and first in the 100-yard butterfly in the Suburban One Conference each of the past three years, respectively. He was also third in the conference last year in the 100-yard backstroke.
In addition to his individual accomplishments, Fiddler was a member of the PWHS 200-yard freestyle relay team that placed ninth at the state championships last season in a school-record time of 1:26.24. He was also on the 200-yard medley relay team that placed 11th in the state in a school-record time of 1:35.54.
Fiddler was named the Colonials Rookie-of-the-Year following the 2016 season.
