Congratulations to Samantha Bosma, Courtney Ciesielski, Heather Moore, Callie Nettles and Shannon O’Malley our 2009 Scholastic All Americans.
USA Swimming is proud to announce that 1500 women and men have been named to the 2008-09 Scholastic All-America Team. This is an increase of over 50 percent from the 2007-08 team.
The 2008-09 team is composed of 905 women and 595 men. Two-thirds of the team members achieved a 4.0 GPA. There was one perfect score this year – Dagny Knutson of G.S.K. Swim in North Dakota achieved a 4.0 GPA and won a national championship title at Short Course Nationals in December 2008. Over 13 percent of the athletes achieved SAA status for three years. The Western Zone led the way with the most swimmers name to the team, and the Pacific and Southern California LSCs tied for most members by LSC.
