Sweep can also mean to move across or through swiftly or broadly: "News of the lunar landing swept the country". To pass quickly across, as when searching: His gaze swept the horizon. You are in a sense correct, it can mean "quick". (Found in Encyclopedia & Wikipedia) Hope this helps!

No, but maybe you mean "swift", which does mean "quick".
