On July 1st, the day often regarded in the swimming world as the kick off to the college recruiting season, Emily Weiss has given her verbal commitment to swim for Indiana University. However, Weiss is not a rising senior, but rather a rising junior at Yorktown High School. The in-state breaststroker will not head to Bloomington until the fall of 2019.

Weiss had a great meet at this week’s Phillips 66 US Nationals. She took down her own Indiana 15-16 state record in the 200 breaststroke (2:30.07) en route to a seventh place finish in the B final. She won the B final of the 50 breaststroke (31.11) to qualify for the Junior World Team. Then Weiss clocked a 1:07.99 to finish second in the 100 breaststroke B final.

In just her sophomore year Weiss has already knocked down current Hoosier Lilly King‘s Indiana high school state record.

Weiss’ best SCY times are:

  • 100 breast 59.37
  • 200 breast 2:11.96
  • 200 IM 2:01.84

While filling King’s relay role could be an extraordinary challenge, Weiss has two years to develop before she makes her college debut. She already looks to make an impact on the NCAA scene, with a 100 breaststroke time that could score points.
