A New York City native, Koenigsberger was a key contributor and point scorer for the Middlebury men’s swimming and diving team.

Koenigsberger was selected as an All-NESCAC performer in each of his four years in the breaststroke events, as well as earning All-American accolades in 2015. At the 2015 NCAA Championships in Shenandoah, Texas, he led the consolation field to the wall to the wall in the 100-yard breaststroke with a time of 55.08, good for ninth place and Honorable Mention All-American accolades.
The next day in the 200-yard breaststroke, Koenigsberger posted the 15th-fastest time during the preliminaries (2:03.15). He capped off his junior season with a school-record swim of 2:01.87 in the consolation final, good for 12th place and Honorable Mention All-American honors.
