By Chris Price

University of Houston freshmen swimmers Kristine Kelly and Linda Fox were recently named to the USA Swimming Scholastic All American Team by USA Swimming.

Kelly and Fox were honored for their scholastic and academic achievements, and were named to the elite squad for the third year in a row.

USA Swimming honors swimmers who maintain a 3.75 grade point average and compete at the national level swimming competition during their high school years.

Kelly competed for the Houston Cougar Aquatic Sports while Fox competed for the Houston Swim Club.

Both swimmers maintained their high GPAs and competed in both the SPEEDO Champions Series Short Course and Long Course Championships to qualify to receive the honors.
