COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – USA Swimming National Team members Katie Ledecky (Bethesda, Md./Nation’s Capital Swim Club), Claire Adams (Carmel, Ind./Carmel Swim Club) and Maxime Rooney (Livermore, Calif./ Pleasanton Seahawks) headline a list of over 1,900 prep swimmers honored by USA Swimming this week as 2014-15 Scholastic All-America selections.

After earning 4.0 grade point averages and national championship victories during the 2014-15 season, Ledecky, Adams and Rooney received the only perfect scores among the 1,925 swimmers honored this year.
