Ten members of the Baylor swimming teams have earned All-American honors from the National Interscholastic Swim Coaches Association for the 2012-2013 season.
Kristen Vredeveld heads the list of four Baylor girls, earning her fourth consecutive All-American honors in both the 50 and 100 freestyle events. Kimberlee John-Williams earned All-American in the 100 yard butterfly and 100 yard backstroke for the third straight year, Hannah Peiffer earned her third straight All-American in the 100 yard backstroke, and rising senior Breanna Roman earned All-American in the 100 breastroke. In addition, the foursome combined to qualify as All-American in both the 200 medley and 200 freestyle relays. Vredeveld, John-Williams, and Peiffer all graduated from Baylor this spring and have scholarships to the University of California-Berkeley, the University of Georgia, and Queens University respectively.
For the Baylor boys, rising senior Sam McHugh is a two-time All-American in the 500 freestyle and added a new All-American honor in the 200 individual medley. Luke Kaliszak, also a rising senior, made All-American in the 100 backstroke. The Baylor 200 medley relay (Kaliszak, Dustin Tynes, McHugh, Will Raines), the 200 freestyle (Kaliszak, Christian Selby, Tynes, and Chandler Hinson), and the 400 freestyle relay (McHugh, Selby, Raines, and Hinson) all earned All-American honors.
"Baylor has a proud tradition of producing All-American swimmers year after year," said Baylor head coach Dan Flack. "The accomplishments of this year’s group of students are really special and certainly have added to and enhanced that proud tradition of swimming excellence."
