COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. –
USA Swimming today announced the full list of 2020-2021 Scholastic All-America recipients. The list consisted of 1,239 athletes in 9-12th grade who maintained a minimum 3.5 grade-point average and swam a time that met the 2019 Winter Junior qualifying time between September 1, 2020 and August 31, 2021.
Of the 1,239 athletes, Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 silver medalist Torri Huske
(Arlington, Va./Arlington Aquatic Club) was the only athlete who achieved a perfect score, achieving a 4.0 GPA and the title of Open Champion, which she claimed via her win in the 100-meter freestyle at the 2020 Toyota U.S. Open.
