Madeira Swimmers Named All-Americans

Madeira Swim and Dive recently received several national recognitions and rankings for both individual swimmers and the team as a whole. This spring, Izzy Gati ‘18, a boarder from El Dorado, AR, Maddie Heilbrun ‘18, a day student from Fairfax Station, VA, Giovi Moriarty ‘18, a day student from Vienna, VA, Meaghan Doyle ‘19, a day student from Derwood, MD, and Sofie Davis ‘20, a day student from Lovettsville, VA, were selected as All-Americans by the National Interscholastic Swim Coaches Association (NISCA).  

The NISCA ranked Gati as 25th best in the nation in the 100 yard butterfly event, and ranked Gati, Davis, Moriarty, and Heilbrun as 91st in the nation in the 200 yard freestyle relay.

Izzy Gati and Maddie Heilbrun were also named to the 2017 USA Swimming Scholastic All-American team in early September, for academic achievement.

The Madeira Varsity Swim and Dive team was also chosen for high honor as a group, and has been ranked 75th best in the nation among all high schools. Madeira Swim and Dive ranks 17th among all private girls’ schools in the country, and ranks 9th in the country among private girls’ schools with an enrollment of under 900 students.

Head Coach, Rod Montrie, shared his excitement for the team's success. "The entire Madeira community is proud of these girls for the way they have represented our school at the highest level of athletics and academics. Their exemplary leadership and successes will help to continue the tradition of excellence for our program."

Congratulations to the Swim and Dive team on their many successes, and good luck in the upcoming season.
