In all, 87 Wahoos were honored for academic achievement and/or top 16-ranking swims.

“There’s no doubt that our swimmers exemplify what these awards represent,” said Bob McDowell, Wilton Family YMCA Executive Director. "This honor is richly deserved and speaks not only to their strength as swimmers, but also as students and teammates.”
