Army West Point Picks Up 1:48/4:48 Freestyler Molly Webber for 2022-23

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.

Molly Webber, a high school junior from Morristown, New Jersey has announced her intention to swim for the United States Military Academy beginning in the fall of 2022.

“I am incredibly excited and grateful to announce my verbal commitment to the United States Military Academy at West Point! Thank you to all my family, coaches, friends, and everyone who helped me get to where I am today. Go Army!!”

A junior at Morristown High School in Morristown, New Jersey, Webber earned NJ.com’s Girls Swimmer of the Year award for 2021. Although New Jersey did not hold a high school swimming and diving championship meet, Webber posted the fastest 200 free and 500 free times of the year. As a sophomore, Webber placed fifth place in the 200 free (1:51.33) and eighth in the 500 free (5:03.59) at the 2020 NJSIAA Meet of Champions. And while all Morristown’s meets were virtual this year, she clocked in at 1:48.42/4:53.81 with no one but her teammates cheering her on.

Those are times that would have scored in the A finals of the 200 free and 500 free at the 2020 Patriot League Championships.

Webber does her club swimming with Life Time Swim Team. She recently improved a number of PBs at a couple of intra-squad meets in February and March. Those include the 100 free, 500 free100 fly, 200 fly, and 200 IM.

Webber will join Erin Son and Grace Wagner in Army West Point’s class of 2026.

Top SCY times:

  • 200 free – 1:49.32
  • 500 free – 4:48.37
  • 1000 free – 10:16.23
