Girls’ swim team honored

ELLSWORTH — The Ellsworth High School girls’ swim and dive team has received the National Interscholastic Swimming Coaches Association of America’s Scholar Team Award for the 2021-22 season.

The overall girls’ team GPA was 3.864, earning them the Gold Level award. At least 12 student athletes must be on the team to be eligible to submit for the award.

“The girls’ swim and dive team has continually achieved this academic award for the past six years,” said coach Jim Goodman.

The boys’ team also did well academically, Goodman noted, but did not meet the minimum number of athletes needed to be considered for the award.

The award honors “the girls on the team who not only continually performed in an excellent manner as athletes this past season, but also achieved academic excellence.”
