Four WAVES earn Scholastic All-America: Bloomington-Normal YMCA WAVES swimmers Grace Ariola, Sidney Kennedy, Melissa Pish and Noelle Peplowski have been named to USA Swimming’s 2017 Scholastic All-America Team. The WAVES ranked third among Illinois clubs in the number of selections.
“I am proud of these athletes, and congratulate them on their consistent effort and on parents support," WAVES head coach Charles Yourd said. "This award is traditionally one of our team strong points, and among our very highest valued honors.”
To be considered for the Scholastic All-America Team, swimmers must maintain a 3.5 GPA for the current academic year and swim a time equal to a 2016 Winter Junior Championships qualifying time in any event during the qualification period. High school sophomores, juniors and seniors are eligible.
