Washington 2A 50 Free/100 Free Champ Dietrich Meyer Commits to Hawaii (2021)

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.

Dietrich Meyer of Bremerton YMCA in Washington state has committed to Hawaii for this coming fall. He’s a senior at Olympic High School.

I’m honoured to finally announce my verbal commitment to continue my academic and athletic career at the University of Hawaii at Manoa this coming fall. Special thanks to all the family members, loved ones, and coaches who have guided me to this point. I hope to make you all proud in these coming collegiate years. Along with this, an enormous amount of appreciation goes to coach Nick for going above and beyond during the recruiting process. Without his help, I wouldn’t have thought this journey possible. I can’t wait to train under the coaching staff and to meet all my future team mates. Go Rainbow Warriors!!

TOP TIMES (SCY)

  • 50 free – 20.93
  • 100 free – 46.36
  • 200 free – 1:44.21

Meyer is a pure sprinter, with the 50 and 100 free his best events. At the 2020 Washington HS 2A State Championships, he swept the sprints, going lifetime bests in the 50 free and 100 free to win both titles. He defended both titles from 2019 and 2018, making him perfect in high school competition (there was no 2021 meet due to the pandemic).

At the 2020 state meet, he also anchored Olympic’s 200 medley in 20.41 and their 400 free relay in 45.71.

This past season, Meyer would’ve been Hawaii’s #4 50 freestyler on the roster, while he would’ve ranked sixth in the 100 free. He would’ve scored in 16th in the 50 free and 18th in the 100 free at the 2021 MPSF Championships, where Hawaii finished second.

Meyer joins Logan Euker and Tomer Goldfaden in Hawaii’s incoming class.
