Recently, the National Interscholastic Swim Coaches Association (NISCA) released its All-American rankings from the 2021-22 academic year. With more than 170,000 high school girls nationwide participating on an interscholastic swimming and diving team, the students that recorded a top 100 fastest time in an event are recognized as All-Americans, with the diving recognition awarded to the top 100 divers as scored through video submission of interscholastic competition dives.

The 2021-22 All-American Swimming & Diving has been published. Notably, Erin Gemmell ‘23 (200 FR, 100 FR, 50 FR) and Eleanor Sun ‘23 (200 IM, 100 FLY) received individual All-American recognition in Swimming and Michelle Mazzara ‘23 received individual recognition in Diving. A standout performance, Erin Gemmell’s 200 FR time of 1:44.37 was the 2nd fastest time recorded in a high school meet this year.

Also receiving All-American recognition in joining Gemmell and Sun for relay events were Melina Anschutz ‘22 and Cameron House ‘25 in the 200 Medley Relay and Darby LeFaivre ‘23 and Lauren Tucker ‘23 in the 400 Medley Relay.

Additionally, all high school swimming programs have the option to submit a virtual meet line-up with best times swum in a high school meet during the 2021-22 academic year to determine how teams would stack up against each other in head-head competition. The National Dual Meet Team Rankings of more than 100 girls teams that submitted line-ups resulted in Stone Ridge ranking 1st in the division of independent schools with an enrollment under 900 students and 17th overall against all girls schools both public and independent.
