The Aggie Swim Club would like to congratulate Julia Cook who was named to USA Swimming's 2017-2018 National Junior Team.
The National Junior Team is made up of athletes who are 18 or younger as of September 1, 2017, who are eligible to compete for the U.S. internationally and who have not competed at an individual event at the Olympics, World Championships or Pan Pacific Games.
The team is pulled from FINA’s world rankings, with the top 2 swimmers in each Olympic event making the team first. Then the ...third and fourth swimmers in the relay-distance freestyles (100 and 200) are selected, and a few more athletes are added if they haven’t yet qualified but have a high world rank (top 75 for girls, top 100 for boys) in an Olympic event. The qualifying period is January 1 – August 31, 2017.
Julia was named for her swim in the 100 meter freestyle (55.61) at the World Championship Trials in June.
Julia's placement on the US NJT will also make Aggie Swim Club Head Coach Henry Clark a USA Swimming National Jr Team Coach.
