Gwinnett graduates and Florida Southern swimming teammates Robbie Swan, Kelsey Gouge and Bruce Janzen have been named to the College Swimming Coaches Association of America NCAA Scholar All-American first team.
Swan, a Brookwood grad, earns his second consecutive Scholar All-American honor after swimming the anchor leg of the Mocs’ national championship 200 medley relay team that posted a school and NCAA D-II record time. In addition, Swan also took home five All-American certificates at this year’s national championship meet, was named a Capital One/CoSIDA First-Team Academic All-America Men’s At Large selection and a second-team All-SSC selection.

Gouge, also a Brookwood grad, was a 19-time individual winner for the Moccasins this year, and was also on 10 different winning relay teams throughout the season. As a freshman, she won both the 50 and 100 freestyle at the Sunshine State Conference Championships with meet-record times, and was part of two victorious relay teams as well. She went on to win NCAA D-II All-American honors in the 50 freestyle and 100 breaststroke, and Honorable Mention All-American in the 100 freestyle.
Janzen, a Collins Hill grad, earns the Scholar All-American honor for the fourth consecutive year. He was an honorable mention All-American in the 200-yard butterfly at the NCAA D-II National Championships.
