In a recent revelation in American junior swimming, Alexandra Meyers of the Schroeder YMCA has committed to Stanford according to her coach Dave Anderson: giving head coach Greg Meehan yet another spectacular piece for his recruiting class that comes to campus in the fall of 2014.
Meyers, who is on the younger end of this class, is primarily a short-to-middle-distance freestyler. In yards, her best times are 23.2, 49.8, 1:46.9, and 4:52.5 from the 50 through 500 yard freestyles.
She’s as good, if not better, in long course, where at Junior Nationals she was a 26.09 and 56.06 in the 50 and 100 meter freestyles.
Meyers is a member of the USA Swimming Junior National Team and swam a the 2013 World Junior Championships, where she won a bronze in the 400 free relay by splitting a 56.34 in the 3rd leg of finals.
Stanford’s class already includes Meyers, Heidi Poppe, Janet Hu, Ally Howe, and Lindsey Engel.
The rest of the country is now playing catch up in this recruiting class, and even with two months to go before the early signing period opens and these high school seniors can make their decisions official, it seems nearly impossible for anyone to surpass this Stanford class.
