Super excited to announce my verbal commitment to continue my swimming and academic career at the U! Both the team and the coaches are amazing and so welcoming. I fell in love with the culture and pride at Miami and am grateful to be joining the family. I want to thank my coach, Crystal Keelan, for helping me get to this point, as well as my team and family for their constant support. Can’t wait to be a cane#ItsAllAboutTheU

Weiss is a versatile talent, but her 200 free is her clear standout event. In that race, she placed third with her lifetime best 1:49.84 at the 2020 Easterns, one of the top private school championships in the country. Weiss was also fourth in the 500 free (4:58.15/4:57.94 in prelims) and split a 51.21 on the third leg of Penn Charter’s title-winning 400 free relay.

Weiss also finished third in both the 200 free (1:51.39) and 500 free (4:56.86) at the 2019 Easterns last year, while she was runner-up in both events in 2018 as a freshman.

Miami has a season left with top mid-distance freestylers Sydney Knapp (49.8/1:48.5) and Carmen San Nicholas Martinez (50.2/1:48.7). Weiss would’ve been their top 500 freestyler last year and #3 200 freestyler with her lifetime bests.

Weiss joins Jacey Hinton, Emily Grasso and Lucy Miller in Miami’s class of 2025.
