These athletes maintained at least a 3.5 grade point average while meeting the 2019 Winter Junior National time standards in the pool.
The team is very proud these athletes demonstrated that they excel in the pool and in the classroom. We have a lot pride in having some of the smartest and fastest swimmers in the country. As a team, we were one of the top programs in the nation with most successful applicants. In the western zone, our team was tied for 4th most, so only 3 other club swimming programs had more Scholastic All-American team members. Additionally, Canyons had the 2nd most in all Southern California Swimming (SCS) and in the state of California! The only team to have more in the SCS and in the state was Irvine Novaquatics.
Congratulations Canyons Aquatic Club swimmers!
