Camille Weiss is transferred from Miami (FL) to Virginia Tech

Fitter and Faster Swim Camps is the proud sponsor of SwimSwam’s College Recruiting Channel and all Pledge 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 along their journey.

Camille Weiss of Philadelphia, PA has announced its commitment to transfer to Virginia Tech. Weiss was originally signed to the University of Miami (FL) and swam a meet with the team in the fall.

“Change of plans…super excited to announce my commitment to Virginia Tech!! A big thank you to my coaches and teammates for bringing me here and thank you to the coaches at Virginia Tech for such a warm welcome. I can’t wait to join the Hokie family

Weiss was originally a member of the Class of 2025 for Miami and appeared in the team’s first meeting of the season in October against FIU. There she swam times of 54.79 in the 100 freestyle and 1:56.70 in the 200 freestyle. She did not compete for the Hurricanes afterward.

SwimSwam reached out to Weiss about her change of plans and she said she had surgery last year. She is medically in red shirt this season, which allows her not to lose a year of eligibility. She also said she was looking forward to joining a mixed team with a different team culture.

Prior to this dual meet, she has not competed since December 2020. In December 2020, she competed at the Middle Atlantic 18 & Under Championships. There she was just off her best times in several events. These include the 100m freestyle (0.18 from his best), the 200 breaststroke (0.36 from his best) and the 200 IM (2.07 from his best).

Weiss is graduating from Penn Charter School in the spring of 2021. She also swam for the Penn Charter Aquatic Club.

His best short course times are:

  • 50 free: 24.30
  • 100 free: 52.19
  • 200 free: 1:49.84
  • 500 free: 4:56.86
  • 100 butterfly: 56.97
  • 200 butterfly: 2:05.05
  • 200 MI: 2:07.24
  • 400 IM: 4:28.35

Virginia Tech is a public university located in Blacksburg, Virginia. The school is a member of the ACC. The Hokie Women finished fourth out of 12 teams at the 2021 ACC Championships.

With small dips from her best times, she has the potential to make an impact at the conference level. She is on her way to qualifying for the 200m freestyle “C” final when it took her 1:49.24 to earn a second race. He also took a time of 4:50.39 in the 500m freestyle and 4:23.54 in the 400 IM to qualify for the finals.

Her best times in the 500 freestyle and 400 IM would put her fourth on the list this season, and her best time in the 200 freestyle would put her tied for fifth.

She also told SwimSwam that she plans to arrive on campus this summer or fall. She’ll arrive on campus just in time as the Hokies’ 200 fastest freestyler this season, Reka Gyorgy is a graduate student.
