Congratulations to Heidi Smithwick and Josh Zuchowski. They were selected to join 54 other swimmers at the Southern Zone Select Camp at the University of Louisville, in Louisville, KY May 24-27.
28 male and 28 female athletes are selected in each of the four Zones. Selected girls must be age 12-13 at the time of performance. Selected boys must be age 13-14 at the time of performance. 14 athletes of each sex are selected based on 2017 Long Course Meters (LCM) IMX point scores according to the following:
Seven girls age 12 and seven boys age 13
Seven girls age 13 and seven boys age 14
Then, the fastest swimmer in each Zone in each Long Course Meters (LCM) Olympic event (including the 800 and 1500 for both sexes) is invited for a total of 14 additional male and 14 additional female athletes. If a swimmer was already selected based on IMX score, the next fastest swimmer is selected in that event.
