Maximus Williamson, Alex Shackell Lead NISCA All-America Lists For 2023-2024

The National Interscholastic Swim Coaches Association (NISCA) has posted its All-America lists for the 2023-2024 season, highlighting the top performances from around the country in high school swimming. While the women’s list featured adifferent swimmer in the top spot ineach individual event, the men’s had a clear standout in Keller (Texas) High School junior Maximus Williamson.

Williamson posted one of the best-ever performances at a high school state meet in February as he broke David Nolan’s long-standing national record in the 200 IM (1:40.81) and also took down the national mark in the 100 freestyle (41.84), the latter effort while leading off his team’s 400 free relay. Williamson also tied for the national lead in the 50 free (19.45) and finished second in the 100 backstroke (46.29), and he led Keller to new national records in both freestyle relays.

For the women, Alex Shackell is the top-ranked swimmer in the 100 butterfly with her time of 50.25, and she and Molly Sweeney were both part of Carmel 200 medley and 400 freestyle relays that led the country. Shackell recently qualified for the U.S. Olympic team in the 200 butterfly and 800 freestyle relay.

Kaii Winkler is on the list for his record-setting time of 1:32.68 in the 200 free. Winkler also broke the national record in the 100 free, only for Williamson to top that mark a few months later.
