PACS Student Accepted as Academic All American

Pulaski Academy and Central School student McKenna McCormack was recently selected to the National Interscholastic Swimming Coaches of America, Inc. All-America Team.


More than 340,000 students are involved in aquatics at school, with only 2 percent of these students being recognized as All-Americans.


To qualify for this distinction, seniors must carry a cumulative average of 97 percent or higher for seven semesters of high school.


“I am so proud of the student-athlete that McKenna is,” said swim coach Meg Woods. “She emulates all that we strive for our student-athletes to achieve through hard work and dedication.”


McCormack participates on the boys’ varsity swim team and was named co-captain of the team. She qualified for sectionals this year in both the 100-yard backstroke and the 200-yard freestyle relay.


“Academic All-American shows my hard work in academics and athletics, and I’m proud to receive this recognition,” said McCormack. “As a senior, this award is especially meaningful to me since it is my last swim season.”


McCormack will be awarded a certificate noting her selection for the All-America Team.
