5 McCallie Swimmers Named 2018-19 All-Americans

Friday, July 12, 2019

Five McCallie School swimmers were named 2018-19 All-Americans Wednesday in a list released by the National Interscholastic Swimming Coaches Association.

 

Jake Marcum, Class of 2019, and rising senior Will Jackson each earned All-America honors for individual events; Marcum in the 100 backstroke, Jackson in the 500 freestyle, and both in the 200 freestyle.

 

Additionally, the Blue Tornado’s 200-meter freestyle relay team and the 400 freestyle relay team garnered All-America accolades.

The 200-meter squad consisted of Max Ransom ’19, rising senior Reece Gallagher, Marcum, and Jackson. The 400-meter team included Ransom, rising sophomore Sam Powe, Marcum and Jackson.

 

“It was certainly a great year for our swim program,” McCallie Head Coach Stan Corcoran said. “I thought we had a shot to win the state meet, and our swimmers were motivated and performed well. These times are a result of this. It’s a culmination of a terrific season.”

 

Marcum is headed to Indiana University on a swimming scholarship. He was the Tennessee State Champion in the 200 freestyle, while Jackson claimed a state title in the 500 freestyle. Marcum set the school record in the 100 backstroke at 48.60 for a second-place state finish. The 200 and 400 relay teams also won state titles in February with school records as the Blue Tornado captured the team state championship, its eighth since 1992.
