With the final big championship meets of the year scheduled for this weekend — the Maryland state and Metros championships — we’re nearing the end of high school season.
For those of you preparing for Metros, here’s this season’s psych sheet.
The Virginia AAA state meet, as you may have seen or read about, was held in Virginia Beach at a short-course meter pool. Most states and high school competitions are held in short-course yards, and thus there was confusion about All-American standards.
The National Interscholastic Swim Coaches Association sent out an email with the unofficial All-American standard times. According to NISCA President Dana Abbott, these times should be used to get “a ballpark idea of whether a swimmer qualifies” for All-American standards before applying for the honors.
Again, these times do NOT guarantee a swimmer made the actual standard cut.
If it looks like a swimmer makes the standard, coaches can submit an application through the NISCA website.
Here are the UNOFFICIAL standards. You can also see them here:
