Swimming & Diving Team of the Year: Sacred Heart Academy
Sacred Heart Academy’s swimming and diving team is no stranger to success. The Valkyries were the only high school in the nation to qualify seven swimmers for the U.S. Olympic Trials this past June.
Sacred Heart won its fourth-straight state title and 28th overall state title this past spring with a victory margin of 200+ points. Along the way, they went 4-1 in dual meets at 1st at the Eastern Kentucky Relays. They set eight KHSAA regional records and five state records. The Valkyries also boasted 15 NISCA All-American Swims and eight Division I signees.
