Versatile swimmer Madreena Lee enlists in the State’s Cal Poly class of 2025

Fitter and faster swim camps is the proud sponsor of SwimSwam’s college recruiting channel and all engagement 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 have supported them on their journey.

Madreena Lee announced their decision to swim for California Poly starting in the 2021-2022 season. She recently graduated from Carondelet High School and swims the Terrapins Swim Team Club.

I am very happy to announce my commitment to continue my college and swimming career at Cal Poly SLO! I want to thank my family, coaches and friends for all their love and support! Go mustangs!

Lee had to take a two-year hiatus after being diagnosed with stage 3 dysautonomia. His doctors were able to control his symptoms, allowing him to get back in the water and start again. Since then, she has continued to improve her best times.

In May 2019, Lee competed in the California CIF North Coast Section Championship. She swam the 100 butterfly and the 200 IM, touching the 23rd and 31st respectively. His flight time of 59.56 was a personal best, while his 2h13.68 IM was just below his best.

Lee picked up his first 2021 Futures Cup during an intra-squad meeting. She swam the 200 chest, 200 IM, 200 fly, 100 chest and 500 freestyle. Between her preliminary races and her final races, she has lost 3.69 seconds since entering the 200 breaststroke, winning her first qualifying time for the futures. She also saw significant improvements in her 200 IM, dropping 4.34 seconds for a time of 2: 09.24. She had other best times in her life in the 100 butterfly (58.35) and 500 free (5: 14.04).

Best SCY times:

  • 200 chest – 2: 22.65
  • 200 IM – 2: 09.24
  • 400 MI – 4: 35.66
  • 100 flies – 58.35
  • 200 fly – 2: 09.85

Lee will have an immediate impact on the team when she arrives in fall 2021. Her best times would have made her a point scorer for the team at the 2021 MPSF Championships. She would have finished 10th in the 400 IM, 11th in the 200 m breaststroke and 16th in the 200 IM. She will be one of Cal Poly’s fastest breaststroke swimmers and IMers.

Mustangs have already made commitments to butterflier Taylor Lyon and brew Dariko Djatej for the 2025 class.
