Seven Higley High School swimmers are the newest inductees into the National Interscholastic Swimming Coaches Association of America’s All America Team.
Gus Becker, Summer Chesley, Raul Guemes, McKinlie Jones, Spencer Raymond, Cole Sundem and Remington Williams are part of only two percent of students who are recognized with this honor, out of over 340,000 students involved in high school aquatics nationwide.
Each stand-out student met competitive time standards to achieve this feat.
In addition, both varsity boys and girls swim and dive teams received the All America Silver Scholar Team Award for earning cumulative unweighted GPAs of over 3.5. The boys team’s cumulative GPA average was 3.608. The girls team’s cumulative GPA average was 3.679.
This marks the sixth year the girls’ team has gained this recognition, and the third year for the boys’ team.
The Higley Knights boys team is one of only two male Arizona teams to receive this recognition. The girls team is the only female team in Arizona to receive this recognition.
The teams are coached by Chris Robinson.
