USA Swimming Scholastic All-America Student Athletes Congratulations to our Scholastic All-America Dolphins: Lauren Heller, Jason Quinn, Maureen Rakovec and Henry Senkfor. All four student athletes have maintained a 4.0 GPA for at least one year and Henry  and Maureen have done so for two years.


2013-2014 was a great year for scholar-athletes with 1782 being recognized by USA Swimming.  77% of those athletes have a 4.0 GPA or better. All have achieved the minimum qualifying time (2011 Jr Bonus standard) or swum in the USA Swimming Open Water Championship or a Disability Championship meet.

Congratulations to these fine student athletes!

LESD welcomes the B3 Aquatics Coaches and Swimmers with the merging of the teams.
