USA Swimming today
announced its 2014-15 National Junior Team roster, honoring the
nation’s top up-and-coming swimmers.
The complete National Junior Team roster, which is comprised of the top six swimmers in each Olympic event, can be found online here. National Junior Team members must be age 18 or under on Sept. 1, 2014.
Each member of the Team USA squad at last month’s Junior Pan Pacific Championships was named to the National Junior Team. That team captured a combined 49 medals, including 28 gold, across pool and open water competitions in Maui, Hawaii.
Eighteen swimmers – nine men and nine women – earned National Junior Team status in at least three events.
Swimmers were selected for the USA Swimming National Junior Team based on their times in Olympic events from the combined results of all USA Swimming and FINA sanctioned meets, as well as 2014 YMCA Long Course Nationals, from Jan. 1, 2014, to Sept. 1, 2014. The top six athletes in each event made the National Junior Team, however, relay lead-offs, time trials, swim-offs and intermediate splits were not considered.
Open water National Junior Team members qualified by placing among the top six 18-and-under finishers at the 2014 USA Swimming Open Water National Championships.
