Swimmer honored for athletics, academics
Zoey Cole was named a 2019 NISCA Academic All-American high school swimmer. This is a designation by the National Interscholastic Swimming Coaches Association, which honors only 2 percent of more than 300,000 high school swimmers, divers and water polo participants from across the country.
Cole ended the season with two first-place finishes in the district championship tournament in the 200- and 500-yard freestyle races, breaking the high school record in both. She also earned All-State honorable mention at the PIAA state swim meet.
“She is the epitome of the term student-athlete as her success in the pool is only rivaled by her success in the classroom,” Athletic Director Deb Moore said.
