High School

Weiss first made headlines when she broke Olympic Champion Lilly King’s Indiana high school state record as a sophomore, registering a 59.37 to go under King’s 59.63. That summer (2017), heading into her junior season, Weiss verbally committed to study and swim at the University of Indiana.

At the 2018 Indiana state meet, Weiss broke her own state record in prelims (59.25) and proceeded to break the national high school record in finals, clocking a 58.40. Weiss ended her high school career with a win in the same event at the 2019 state meet (58.91), giving her a clean sweep 4-peat in the event.

Weiss was ranked as #4 in SwimSwam’s Top 20 NCAA recruits for the class of 2019, and #4 in the Re-rank of that class as well.
