Four DCST Swimmers Named to USA Swimming’s Scholastic All-American Team
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. Eligible times must be swum by June 30, 2011 and the application completed by August 1.
For the 2010 – 2011 season, DCST swimmers Grant Alef, Michael Gordon, Katie Hallenbeck and Kei Ishimaru all achieved this honor. This was the third time Grant achieved this status, while it was the first time for Michael, Katie and Kei.
