Fitter and Faster Swim Camps is the proud sponsor of SwimSwam’s College Recruiting Channel and all commitment 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 supported them on their journey.
Caltech continues to roll with their recruiting for their class of 2025, nabbing Pierre Zeineddin of Rockville Montgomery Swim Club. Zeineddin is a senior at Richard Montgomery High School in Maryland.
There’s something awesome about California. I am very grateful to have been taken into this great family, one that defines its members not by their religion, sex, race or creed, but by their hard work and determination to bettering themselves and others. I’ll make sure to give my best to help support that mission. Hoorah! Vive le Caltech!
TOP TIMES (SCY)
- 100 fly – 50.13
- 200 fly – 1:47.79
- 200 IM – 1:54.06
- 50 free – 21.81
- 100 free – 47.81
At the 2021 NCSA Spring Championships in March, Zeineddin finished sixth overall in the 200 fly, going a lifetime best. He also set personal bests in the 100 fly and 200 IM. In high school competition, Zeineddin finished third in the 100 fly and fifth in the 200 free at the 2020 Maryland HS 3A/4A State Championships.
Zeineddin’s 200 fly is a pretty eye-popping time for a high schooler committed to a D3 school, especially since Caltech doesn’t have much of a reputation on the D3 national level. Caltech has been on a steady rise the last half-decade or so, though; over the past six seasons, they’ve broken school records in every event.
Caltech placed sixth out of nine teams at the 2020 SCIAC Championships. Zeineddin would’ve been the 200 fly runner-up at the meet with his best time, and he would’ve also made A-finals in the 100 fly and 200 IM. Further, he’s over a second faster than Caltech’s 200 fly program record, .02 ahead of their 100 fly record and just off of the record in the 200 IM.
