Each year, USA Swimming recognizes its members who excel both in the classroom and in the pool. The Scholastic All-America Team is made up of high school student-athletes who have a grade point average of 3.5 or higher and who have achieved the required time standard in a single event.
To be eligible for this recognition, swimmers must have completed 10th, 11th or 12th grade and must be a USA Swimming member athlete.
This year, over 1,200 student-athletes made the grade. There were a total of 35 PNS swimmers who have been selected and 15 came from BCST, which was once again the largest number from any team in the LSC. BCST takes as much pride in the success of it's swimmers academically as it does athletically. These swimmers amazingly did a combination of both!
Congratulations to Austin Barnard (1), Stephen Boden (2), Morgan Ciliv (2), Caitlin Cox (2), Marley Cross (1), Aaron Elhajj (1), Max Emerick (1), Elisa Fang (1), Ed Kim (3), Tim Kralj (1), Dave Makhervaks (1), Todd McCarthy (3), Sam Petrini (1), Michael Stanchi (3) and Kim Williams (2) for earning this impressive honor.
