Congratulations to DART at Sacramento swimmer, Amalie Fackenthal, who was named to the USA Swimming National Junior Team for the 2017-2018 season. She made the team based on her 100m Free swim (55.61) at the 2017 Phillips 66 National Championships in June, which placed her 4th in that event amongst US 18 & unders (20th in 18 & under world rankings) and 128th in the world overall (all ages). Coach Brian was also named a National Junior Team Coach.
67 swimmers were named to the 2017-2018 National Junior Team (33 women; 34 men).
The National Junior Team is made up of athletes who are 18 or younger as of September 1, 2017, who are eligible to compete for the U.S. internationally and who have not competed at an individual event at the Olympics, World Championships or Pan Pacific Games. The Junior National Team also excludes athletes who are part of the senior National Team.
