Georgia, Cal top Cameron’s college list
By: BRUCE MORGAN Record Express Sports Editor email@example.com, Staff Writer
University of Georgia freshman Amber McDermott recently just won the silver medal in the 500 free at the NCAA Division-I Swimming Championships.
McDermott, though, is hoping to land an even bigger prize out of the pool.
That is, she’s trying to convince her friend, Warwick High School star junior Emily Cameron, a five-time PIAA State gold-medalist, to become a Bulldog.
Asked about the possibility of them being teammates at Georgia, Cameron said, "Maybe. We’ll have to see. (McDermott) would love that."
At this point, Cameron acknowledges that Georgia is at the top of her list. The University of California is next. And she has also looked at the University of Florida, another school known for its swimming program.
"Anything could turn in the next coming months, so we’ll see what happens," she said.
But Georgia, led by head coach Jack Bauerle, has the inside track at this point.
"I went and visited in the summer and loved the coaching staff," Cameron said. "They were just so down to earth. Sometimes you can tell when it’s an act, when they just want to recruit you because you’re good. But they all seemed so genuine. I mean, I know a bunch of girls on their team already and I know of bunch of the guys, and they were all so real and so nice to me when I came there for a visit."
Georgia already has a strong connection with former District Three star swimmers. Hempfield’s Kyle Salyards and Wilson’s Kristy Kowal, both of whom competed at the 2000 Olympic Games in Sydney, also attended Georgia.
"(Kristy) is an amazing person," Cameron said. "When I was talking to her, it got me so excited for the upcoming years. I was just having a conversation with her because she obviously went to Georgia and I just wanted to see (from her perspective) how she liked it."
Cameron will take her official visit to the Athens, Ga. campus in September, but she is leaving her options open.
"Obviously, anything can change," Cameron said. "Georgia was first, then Cal and from there on, I really don’t know. It’s kind of a huge jumble."
Regardless of what happens, she hopes to have a final decision made by early signing date in November.
"(That way), I can just focus on the rest of my senior year," Cameron said. More COLLEGES, page B-6
