Concordia University Irvine Lands 49.9 butterfly Jayden Hernandez

Fitter and Faster Swim Camps is the proud sponsor of SwimSwam’s College Recruiting Channel and all of the engagement news. For many, swimming in college is a lifelong dream that is pursued with commitment and determination. Fitter and Faster is proud to honor these athletes and those who supported them on their journey.

Mercury swimming Jayden Hernandez is committed to Concordia University Irvine for the fall of 2021. He is a senior at Leigh High School in San Jose.

I am very excited to announce my commitment to swimming and studying at Concordia University Irvine. I would like to say a big thank you to all my friends, family and coaches who have helped me with this. I’m really looking forward to the years to come. Go eagle!


  • 100 flies – 49.98
  • 200 fly – 1: 55.30
  • 200 IM – 1: 57.19

Hernandez was a 100 Fly B finalist in the CIF Central Coast Section Championships in 2018 and 2019, and he’s a Futures qualifier in that event as well.

Over the next season, Hernandez should give the Concordia butterfly group an instant boost. During the 2019-20 season, he would have been the fastest 100 Buttterflier with over 1.5 seconds, while he would have been number 2 on the roster in the 200 flight. At the PCSC Championships in 2021 he would have finished second in the 100 fly and fourth in the 200 fly.

Hernandez’s 100 flight is just over a second off the Concordia school record, and he’ll be able to keep up with the Eagles for the coming season.
