Both swimming and diving teams at Wethersfield High School received an honor which awards the program’s athletic and academic excellence.
Head coach Lee Schwartzman, who coaches both the boys and girls teams at WHS, released this statement.
“I received very exciting news from NISCA (National Interscholastic Swim Coaches Association). Both the 2019-2020 Wethersfield Boys and Girls Swim and Dive teams have been named a NISCA Scholar All-American Team at the Silver level. This means that the overall cumulative GPA of each Varsity team is in the range of 3.5 to 3.749. The boys Varsity team GPA was 3.511. The girls Varsity team GPA was 3.543.
I am incredibly proud of all the student athletes for their hard work both in and out of the pool. According to the rules of the award, all athletes that earned a Varsity letter for the 2019-2020 season were included in the calculation for the award.”
Schwartzman added that Wethersfield was the only public school in the state of Connecticut to receive the awards for both programs.
In addition, senior swimmer Kayla Condon was named a NISCA All American Scholar Athlete. The qualifications for that award include being on the varsity team and having a 3.75 cumulative GPA.
