PHOENIX, Arizona, September 1. THE September Swimming World Magazine is now available for download for Total Access Subscribers!
The September issue of Swimming World Magazine names the United States' best overall boys and girls high school teams in 2013. It may come as no surprise that the Bolles School (Jacksonville, FL) took the boys' overall team title after their spectacular showing in November 2012 at the Division 1A High School Championships in Orlando, FL. The boys' team set five overall national high school records (100 yard back, 100 butterfly and all three relays) and two independent school records (50 and 100 freestyle).
Sergio Lopez's squad was a key component in making the 2012-13 high school season arguably the best high school swim season in history. Don't miss out on your chance to relive it in the pages of Swimming World Magazine!
