NISCA Crowns Southlake, New Trier as 2 of 12 HS Dual Meet National Champions

  2 Braden Keith | July 16th, 2012 | Featured, High School, News

The National Interscholastic Swim Coaches Association has compiled and released their data for the National Dual Meet Team Rankings.

These annual rankings are compiled on the basis of submissions from coaches around the country, and are separated into separate classes based on gender, school size, and public versus private.

Power points are awarded based on a maximum of three entries in each individual event (including diving) and two entries in each relay; normal dual meet entry rules apply: each athlete may be used in no more than 4 events (2 individual and 2 relays, or 1 individual and 3 relays).

Nearly half of this year’s National Championship awards go to repeat champions:

  • Hamilton High School in Michigan repeated as Class 1 Champions (Boys public 1-900)
  • Hershey High School in Pennsylvania in Class 2 (Boys public 901-1400) – think David Nolan
  • New Trier High School in Illinois in Class 4 (Boys public over 1900)
  • Upper Arlington High School in Ohio in Class 7 (Girls public 901-1400)
  • Bolles School in Florida in Class 9 (Girls private 1-900)

Bolles and Upper Arlington are both double national champions in their respective divisions for boys and girls.

In one of the best national battles for these titles, Texas’ Southlake Carroll girls topped Indiana’s Carmel High School by two points for both the Class 8 (the largest public school) titles, as well as the overall girls national crown.

New Trier took the overall boys’ honor on the back of their National High School Record in the 400 free relay and their star Reed Malone. But Malone was far from the only star on this team – the New Trier boys won 7 out of the 12 Illinois High School event championships. They finished 89-points ahead of Olympic Trials finalist Ryan Murphy and Bolles for the overall National title.

Congratulations to Southlake Carroll and their head coach, Kevin Murphy on another excellent season and this recognition of their excellent program. Boys won the highly competitive Texas 5A State Championship for the 2nd year in a row, with a record setting performance and the Girls won their first ever Texas State Championship, also with a record number of points, in the history of the meet.

Class 6 should be Holland, Michigan not Minnesota.
