Five Brunswick swimmers were recently recognized by the National Interscholastic Swim Coaches Association (NISCA) as All-Americans. Rising seniors Christian Farricker, Keegan Drew, Cole Pierce along with rising junior Marcus Hodgson, join recent Brunswick graduate Thacher Scannell on the list of national award winners.
According to the NISCA, the fastest one hundred submitted and accepted times by the NISCA in each event will be named All-America.
Hodgson picked up three awards from the NISCA, giving the Riverside resident a total of five in just two seasons. Hodgson earned All-American accolades for an individual 50-freestyle (20.71, #77 nationally) and was part of the team’s 200-freestyle relay (1.24.97, #61) and 400-freestyle relay (3:04.31, #28).
Farricker, now a four-time All-American, also earned three nods by the NISCA this year. The Cos Cob swimmer was 37th nationally in the individual 500-freestyle (4:27.49) and was part of the 200 and 400 freestyle relay teams.
Keegan Drew, from Harrison, N.Y., earned two All-American selections as part of the 200 and 400 freestyle relay teams. For his career, Drew has three All-American results.
Cole Pierce joined Farricker as an All-American in the 500 Freestyle (4:29.29), finishing 61th in the nation. The Greenwich resident picked up another All-American result in the 400-freestyle relay this year. Pierce also has a total of three All-American times for his career.
Scannell earned a swimming All-American nod as a part of the 200-freestyle relay. The Stamford resident was also recognized by the NISCA as an All-American in water polo (fourth team).
While Scannell heads to NCAA Division I Davidson College (N.C.) to continue swimming next year, Brunswick’s swim coach Aaron Montgomery will have Farricker, Drew and Pierce for one more season and Hodgson for two.
