Following the conclusion of the 2018-2019 swim season, USA Swimming today announced the names of 1,634 high school swimmers who have been selected to the 2018-2019 High School Scholastic All-America Team.

To earn the title of Scholastic All-American, athletes must be in 9th-12th grade and maintain a minimum 3.5 grade point average during the application year, while meeting the 2018 Winter Junior time standards in the pool. For the complete selection criteria, visit

Two athletes received perfect scores – earning a 4.0 GPA and a Phillips 66 National Championships title – in the 2018-2019 season. Regan Smith (Lakeville, Minn./Riptide Swim Team) claims the prestigious title by way of her national title in the 200-meter backstroke, while Emma Weyant (Sarasota, Fla./Sarasota Sharks) earns the perfect score with her 400m individual medley national title. Both athletes were recently named to the 2019-2020 U.S. National Team.

Southern California leads all LSC’s with 106 honorees, while Swim MAC Carolina (N.C.) leads all clubs with 41 athlete selections. The 1,634 applicants is an increase from last year’s total, and has risen by nearly 500 athletes since 2016.
