Fitter and Faster is proud to honor these athletes and those who have supported them on their journey.
Reno, Nevada Emma Schott has made a verbal commitment to the University of Kansas for 2022-2023. She announced her decision on social media in July:
“I am very happy to announce my verbal commitment to furthering my varsity and swimming career at the University of Kansas! Rock Chalk Jayhawk !!! ️ ”
An American student of swimming in the United States, Schott is an aspiring student at Reno High School. She swims year round with the Lakeridge Swim Team and focuses primarily on MI, Freestyle and Flying. Her best performances, including a Winter Juniors standard in the 200 IM, date from 2019 and 2020. At the Washington Open in January 2020, she placed 4th in the 400 IM and 5th in the 200 IM, earning PBs in both events (2: 03.69 / 4: 23.09). These times were marked improvements from the previous month when she competed against Winter Juniors West in the same events but clocked 2:06/4:31. Also at the 2020 Washington Open, she finished in the 100 butterfly and won new times in the 100 and 200 butterfly.
This summer, Schott won the 200 IM at the Senior Long Distance West Zone Championships with a time of 2: 22.43, just off her PM of 2: 22.00 from Mt. Hood Futures in 2019. She also finished the 400 IM, 200 free and 100 fly.
Best SCY times:
- 200 IM – 2: 03.69
- 400 RI – 4: 23.09
- 100 flies – 57.08
- 200 flies – 2: 10.58
- 100 free – 52.89

Schott will join the Jayhawks along with his 2026 classmates like Hailey Farrell, Lydia Lafferty and Maggie Moore. She will join an instant messaging group that just lost Dannie Dilsaver and Kate Steward, but she will overlap Ellie Wehrmann and Paige riekhof, who both scored in MI events at the 2021 Big 12 Championships.
