WWAGS Report for 2014-15 Swim Year

Season 3.0 of WWAGS is about to make its appearance, so we thought we’d look back to see what 2014-15 looked like “by the numbers.” In our first year, from October 2013 through August 2014 we had 508 mentions; during the 2014-15 season that number was 473.

As usual, the heaviest concentration of honorees fell in the 12-15 age categories. It isn’t all that surprising, given that big growth spurts during these years tend to lead to big time drops. After all, what we tend to look for when putting together a WWAGS lists is a breakthrough meet, and a lot of athletes make huge strides during their early teenage years.

Here is the breakdown of mentions for the 2014-15 swim season, with the 2013-14 numbers included as a reference:
