NISCA Recognizes Two Weedsport CSD Student-Athletes with 2023-24 Academic All-America Distinction

Each year, the National Interscholastic Swim Coaches Association (NISCA) honors high school senior swimmers with an exemplary academic standing accompanying their accomplishments in the pool through the Academic All-America program. This year’s list of student’s selected for this recognition has been released and Weedsport’s Jasmine Nguyen and Brayden Mitchell have both earned 2023-2024 NISCA Academic All-America distinctions.

In order to be eligible for consideration to be a NISCA Academic All-America athlete, students must meet rigorous requirements. In addition to excelling in their aquatic sport, they must also have be a graduating senior with a minimum GPA of 3.750 or 93.7500% equivalent grade average, that has also been lettered in their high school program (swimming, diving or water polo).

“Both Jasmine and Brayden achieved amazing things during their swim season this year, competing strong and consistently in a sport they exhibit an undeniable passion for,” said WCSD swimming and diving coach Jill King. “They set ambitious goals for themselves this season. Not only did they both exceed those goals, but they also both scored points for the team at sectionals helping with a solid finish overall.”

NISCA is a professional organization that supports High School coaches of all aquatic sports. They are dedicated to coaches’ education and athlete recognition through the All-America programs. In addition, NISCA allows opportunities for coaches to network and exchange knowledge and experience.

Over 353,936 students are involved in aquatics at the high school level in over 17,454 programs for boys’ and girls’, with only approximately 2% of these students are recognized as high school All American’s.
