Junior: Chastain continued to be a major point producer in his junior year. He won the 200-freestyle relay at the BIG EAST Championships with the help of his teammates to qualify for his third NCAA. Chastain placed 10th for an All- American Honorable Mention splitting a 19.82. At BIG EAST, Chastain swam the 50-freestyle for 6th place in 20.43, close to his Purdue Invite time of 20.29. He swam the 100-breaststroke in 53.81 for 5th place, and the 200-breaststroke in 1:59.54 for 5th. Chastain had his season best time at the Purdue Invite in the 200-breaststroke prelim swim in 1:58.32 and swam for a 2nd place finish in 1:58.75. Chastain swam the breaststroke leg of the 200-medley relay and then also swam the 200-freestyle relay at the Purdue Invite both earning 1st place finishes. Chastain represented the Cardinals at the Charlotte UltraSwim in May where he swam the 50-meter breaststroke in 29.16 for 11th, the 100-meter breaststroke in 1:04.94 for 18th, the 200-meter breaststroke in 2:23.94, and the 50-meter freestyle in 24.56. Chastain was also one of eight men chosen to represent the Cardinals at the SMU Classic. During the dual meet season, Chastain swept the 100- and 200-breaststroke at the rival meet against UK.
Sophomore: After an exciting freshman year, Chastain continued his success for the Cardinals in the breaststroke events. He qualified for the NCAA Championships for the second year in a row where he competed in the 100- and 200-breast and the 50-free. He finished 23rd in the 100-breast (53.82), 27th in the 200-breast (1:58.58), and 65th in the 50-free (20.47). At the BIG EAST Championships, Chastain was the BIG EAST Champion in the 100-breast, and swam a time of 53.21 in the prelims session. He finished second to a teammate in the 200-breast and had a personal best time of 1:56.37. For his third event, Chastain finished eighth the 50-free and was one of six Cards in the A-Final. He was also a member of the BIG EAST Champion 200-medley relay during which he swam the breaststroke leg in 23.72. His times in all of the events he swam were good enough for NCAA B-cuts. Chastain was a three-time All-BIG EAST performer. In dual meet action, Chastain played a big role in the upset victory over No.11 Indiana. He swam the breaststroke leg of the 200-medley relay which finished first, and he helped sweep the top two spots with second place finishes in both individual breaststroke events.
Freshman: Kameron competed at the USA Nationals in August. Chastain was a four-time All-BIG EAST performer for the Cards in 2010-11. During the BIG EAST Championships, he competed in the 200- and 400-medley relays, the 200-free relay, and the 100- and 200-breast. He swam the breaststroke leg for the 200- and 400-medley relay teams. In the 200, he had the second-fastest split with a time of 24.17, helping the team to a firstplace finish with a B-cut mark of 1:27.86. Chastain had the fastest split (53.40) in the 400-medley relay, resulting in another team race victory and B-cut time (3:12.31). He swam the third leg for the 200-free relay and once again had the fastest split of his field (19.87), guiding the Cards to a first-place finish with a final time of 1:19.69. In the 100-breast, Chastain added an individual first-place finish and made the national B-cut with a time of 53.45. He finished the 200-breast with a time of 1:59.90, placing seventh.
