The University of Miami will add two more names to the women’s swimming and diving roster in the fall of 2018: New York City’s Emily Weissman and Tampa, Florida’s Coco Hull. They will join fellow verbal commits Grace McGinnis, María Artigas, and Zorry Mason in the class of 2022.
“I am extremely excited to announce my verbal commitment to The University of Miami! The combination of academics, coaching and teammates make the U the right school for me. I am so excited to spend the next four years as a Cane!”
Weissman is from Manhattan and attends the Ramaz Upper School in New York City. She swims for Asphalt Green Unified Aquatics (AGUA) under the direction of David Rodriguez and Brad Green; she has been part of the team for 10 years.
Weissman had a very strong short-course season during her junior year, dropping time in all her main events in both the fall (200 free, 200 fly, and 200/400 IM) and the spring (500/1000/1650 free). The latter three came from Speedo Sectionals at Ithaca, where she placed 3rd in the mile, 5th in the 1000, and 20th in the 500. She also competed in the 400 IM. She finished her junior year season with a successful summer campaign, going best times in the 400 free at Eastern Senior Zones, and the 800 free and 400 IM at Metropolitan Swimming Senior Championship.
Best SCY times:
- 500 free – 5:02.35
- 1000 free – 10:08.80
- 1650 free – 17:01.26
