It’s that time of year again when we at anphukhanganchau.vn rank out the top đôi mươi high school swimming prospects in the upcoming NCAA recruiting class.

As college recruiting has reached earlier và earlier into high school classes, we’re continually expanding our recruiting ranks and coverage. Last spring, we ranked out the then-sophomore class. This is essentially a re-rank of that class, taking into trương mục a year of improvements. Stay tuned khổng lồ our recruiting channel for more additions khổng lồ our yearly recruiting coverage:

Girls & boys ranks for current juniors – high school class of 2023 (updated rankings from our “Way Too Early” rankings last spring)Way Too Early ranks for current sophomore girls & boys – high school class of 2024Re-Rank of outgoing senior girls và boys – high school class of 2022

Further reading:

So without further ado, let’s take a look at this class as a whole, then review our ranking methodology (please read it before you get upset about how low the đứng top miler is ranked!) and get into our rankings.

2022 addendum: The sport has returned to something a little more resembling normal after two years of the coronavirus pandemic. That said, the pandemic remains the elephant in the room when it comes to lớn ranking these classes. Certainly every athlete on the các mục has lost out on training và racing opportunities of some kind, & each swimmer in wildly varying amounts. As we can’t reliably quantify whose current portfolio of times is most suppressed by the pandemic years, all we can vị is rank based on the in-pool production we’ve seen. But it’s worth noting up-front that this class has a real chance for some big upheaval as swimmers ‘catch up’ from the missed pandemic years.


Incredible distance classA bit thin in the sprintsStill light on fly/back/breast types, but top-end talent is developingLots of fast risers

When we ranked this class as sophomores, we noted that it was still very much a class in development – and wow did a lot of them blow up over their junior seasons. That’s really noticeable in both the top-end talent & the depth.

It’s still a class very centered around distance freestyle, which makes it especially interesting in an NCAA format that favors the value of sprinters. Three of our đứng top five swimmers are distance types, & even the đứng top 50/100 freestyler is arguably better in the 200 than in either of those events.

There’s a clear-cut #1 in the class – when we ranked them as sophomores, Bella Sims was a great age grouper, but in the year since, she’s become a U.S. Olympian and a force on the national stage. It’s no coincidence that this class of distance swimmers has risen up around her.

That’s a contrast lớn the past few classes, where the elite talents have been more focused on the 100s: Claire Curzan in the class of 2022, Gretchen Walsh in 2021 & Regan Smith in 2020. This class doesn’t have any 100 flyers or backstrokers on that incredible level, but the top-end talent is starting lớn develop more compared to last year, and it’d be pretty surprising if we didn’t have a 50-point or two in fly or back by next year.

This group as a whole is rising fast, with a lot of huge improvement curves among the top 20 recruits.

**The 1000 không tính phí isn’t an event at the Division I NCAA Championships, but is swum instead of the 1650 in many Division I dual meets và is part of the NCAA program in Division II.


Our goal in these rankings is to lớn reflect what college coaches look for in recruits, based on many years of conversations and coverage.

We focus only on American-based athletes, simply because there is so much uncertainty with international recruits – if they’ll come to the United States, when they’ll come to the States và with what graduating class they should be ranked. Projecting international recruits often becomes more a discussion of when they’ll first join a college program & not which program they’ll join.

A few other factors that weigh heavily in our rankings:

Relay Value – Relay points count double in college swimming, và any program needs a strong stable of chất lượng sprinters lớn fill out all 5 relays with stars. Obviously, a special distance swimmer can easily rank ahead of a very good 100 freestyler, but college swimming generally values a sprint freestyler over a distance swimmer, all other factors being equal.Improvements – Actual times carry the most weight by a longshot. But we also keep an eye on a swimmer’s trajectory, especially in deciding between two swimmers with relatively even times.Short Course over Long Course – while every club và every swimmer will have a different balance of focus between short course & long course swimming, the NCAA competes in short course yards, & that’s going to lớn be the main factor considered in these rankings. Long course times are another data point for consideration, but we mainly view them through the lens of what a big long course swim could mean for an athlete’s future in short course.NCAA scoring ability – NCAAs are the big show for college teams, so we’ve weighted NCAA scoring potential very highly. Swimmers who already have NCAA scoring times wind up mostly filling out the đứng top our of rankings. Since college athletic directors – and by extension coaches – also place high value on conference championships, scoring ability at conference meets is also a factor in our rankings.Relative depth in the NCAA & recruiting class – a wealth of elite depth nationwide in one stroke discipline makes a big difference in what times are considered more valuable in that event. Events rise at different rates in the NCAA, but when one sự kiện gets extremely deep & fast at the college level, it makes high school prospects in those events a little less valuable, relatively, with lots of other veteran options. In the same way, a recruiting class stacked with swimmers in butterfly, for example, would make each butterflyer a little less sought-after in the market, with lots of other recruiting options able lớn provide similar production.

Of course, there’s no way lớn predict the future, and the most concrete data we have lớn go on are cold, hard times. These rankings in no way mean that all of these đôi mươi swimmers will be NCAA standouts, and they certainly don’t mean that no swimmer left off this danh sách will make big contributions at the NCAA level.

With that out of the way, let’s get to our rankings.

Disclaimer: there are a lot of high school seniors in the country, và no really good, complete, 100% accurate listing of them all. If you don’t see your favorite swimmer on the list, feel miễn phí to politely point them out in the comments. There’s a chance that we disagree with your assessment of their spot in the đứng đầu 20, và so long as it’s done civilly, there’s no problem with differences of opinions. There’s also a chance that we’ve simply missed a no-brainer (we’ve taken every precaution khổng lồ avoid that), & if that happens, we want lớn make sure we correct it.


1. Bella Sims (Previous Rank: #1) – Sandpipers of Nevada – home-schooled – Henderson, NV **Verbally committed to lớn Florida**

Best Times:

200 free: 1:42.92 (best in class)500 free: 4:32.13 (best in class)1000 free: 9:31.16 (best in class)1650 free: 15:48.70 (best in class)400 IM: 4:03.67 (best in class)200 IM: 1:54.90 (best in class)100 free: 48.5250 free: 22.74200 back: 1:51.69 (best in class)100 fly: 52.21200 fly: 1:53.91

This time last year, Sims was a rising star. This year, she’s an established star và an Olympic medalist. What hasn’t changed is that Sims profiles as the #1 recruit in this class by a staggeringly wide margin. She’s the best pure distance swimmer in a strong distance class, & carries the best times in the class for the 200, 500, 1000, & 1650 frees. But she’s also got elite versatility, with the class’s best 200 back, 200 IM, và 400 im times. Sims’ 1:42.9 in the 200 không tính phí is the fastest time we’ve seen from a junior prospect in years, comparing pretty well lớn legends Katie Ledecky (1:42.03 as a junior) & Missy Franklin (1:43.15 as a junior).

Don’t pigeonhole Sims into the distance freestyle, either. Her 400 yên ổn is the fastest time we’ve ever seen from a high school junior. You can kiểm tra out the competition in our ranking last year of the top high school prospects of the decade.

2. Kiley Wilhelm (Previous Rank: #3) – Life Time Swim Team – Myers Park High School – Charlotte, NC **Verbally committed to lớn Harvard**

Best Times:

100 fly: 51.07 (best in class)200 fly: 1:52.54 (best in class)200 IM: 1:55.78200 back: 1:52.71100 back: 52.47200 free: 1:45.98100 free: 49.33

Wilhelm claimed the #3 rank on this menu last year by virtue of a class-leading 200 back. But she’s had a meteoric rise as a butterflyer over her junior year, dropping from 52.6/1:59.3 to lớn 51.0/1:52.5 – both times are the best in the class. Wilhelm profiles as a classic fly/back full bộ swimmer, which can be an especially valuable archetype because of the medley relay flexibility they give a college program. Wilhelm also has an outstanding 200 IM, which means she doesn’t necessarily have khổng lồ pull a 100 fly/100 back double in the college championship meet format to lớn maximize her scoring.

3. Cavan Gormsen (Previous Rank: #4) – Long Island Aquatic Club – Sacred Heart Academy – Wantagh, NY **Verbally committed khổng lồ Virginia**

Best Times:

1650 free: 15:58.971000 free: 9:35.18500 free: 4:37.90200 free: 1:44.48100 free: 49.20

Gormsen would have been the đứng top distance swimmer in a lot of recruiting classes, và she brings in times that would have made the NCAA’s vị trí cao nhất 8 in both the mile & the 500 không tính tiền this year. Gormsen has also improved her speed dramatically, taking her 200 không tính tiền from 1:46.1 lớn 1:44.4 over her junior year. That’s a big boost lớn her relay value at the college level.

4. Camille Spink (Previous Rank: #5) – Nation’s Capital Swim Club – Battlefield High School – Haymarket, VA **Verbally committed to lớn Tennessee**

Best Times:

200 free: 1:44.29100 free: 48.13 (best in class)50 free: 22.16 (best in class)100 back: 52.76

The best pure sprinter in the class, Spink is going to lớn carry a lot of value in the NCAA’s relay-heavy format. College coaches will be especially happy with Spink’s development in the 200 free, where she’s dropped from 1:46.1 to lớn 1:44.2 over her junior year to rank near the đứng top of the class there. Spink also has a pretty good backstroke, and could turn out to be a medley relay fill-in there in addition to a heavy free relay schedule. Keep an eye on Spink as perhaps the next swimmer in this class to smash onto the national stage in long course: she dropped from 56.0 lớn 55.2 in the 100-meter freestyle since last year’s rankings.

5. Erin Gemmell (Previous Rank: #10) – Nation’s Capital Swim Club – Stone Ridge School – Potomac, MD **Verbally committed to lớn Texas**

Best Times:

200 free: 1:44.37500 free: 4:40.631000 free: 9:43.051650 free: 16:39.70100 free: 48.8350 free: 22.73200 fly: 1:57.04200 IM: 1:57.78

Gemmel is another 200/500 không tính tiền specialist with a pretty wide portfolio of intriguing times. Gemmell cut from 4:45.9 to 4:40.6 over her junior year in the 500 free, & from 1:45.9 to lớn 1:44.3 in the 200. She really hasn’t dropped time in the distance events since last year’s ranks, but is improving rapidly as a sprinter, which is probably a better move for the NCAA format anyways.

6. Tess Howley (Previous Rank: #2) – Long Island Aquatic Club – Sacred Heart Academy – Rockaway Park, NY **Verbally committed khổng lồ Virginia**

Best Times:

100 fly: 51.98200 fly: 1:52.76400 IM: 4:13.47200 back: 1:53.28100 back: 52.93200 free: 1:45.56100 free: 49.4850 free: 22.89

Howley was the đứng top butterflyer in this class a year ago và dropped time in both, though she’s been passed up by Wilhelm for the đứng top times in the class. Howley has a great range of times, though, cracking into the 51s in the 100 fly & sitting just two tenths out of the best 200 fly in the class. That 4:13 in the 400 yên ổn has khổng lồ be intriguing, especially when we cảnh báo that Howley was just 4:19 in that sự kiện at this time last year.

7. Berit Berglund (Previous Rank: #12) – Carmel Swim Club – Carmel High School – Carmel, IN **Verbally committed to Texas**

Best Times:

100 back: 51.32 (best in class)200 back: 1:53.52100 free: 48.70

Berglund carries the đứng top sprint backstroke time in the class, coming in very near 50-point territory. Last year, she was a great 100 backstroker who needed some more development on her tư vấn events. She’s still not as versatile as the other names in the đứng top 10 here, but has made massive strides in her probable NCAA events: from 1:57.9 lớn 1:53.5 in the 200 back and from 50.1 lớn 48.7 in the 100 free. That makes her an outstanding candidate to địa chỉ cửa hàng several relays onto her individual events at some point in college.

8. Lucy Thomas (Previous Rank: #13) – Elmbrook Swim Club – Brookfield East High School – Elm Grove, WI **Verbally committed to lớn Stanford**

Best Times:

100 breast: 58.93 (best in class)200 breast: 2:09.16 (best in class)50 free: 22.33100 free: 49.23200 free: 1:46.82200 IM: 1:59.16

In our ranks last year, we noted that Thomas was coming off a big drop in the long course 100-meter breaststroke. She parlayed that into a huge short course drop in her junior year, breaking a minute for the first time và then cutting all the way khổng lồ 58.9 for the vị trí cao nhất time in the class. For a breaststroker, Thomas is also surprisingly versatile, sitting just a few tenths off the đứng đầu 50 không tính phí time in the class, which could make her a Sophie Hansson-esque addition to multiple NCAA relays.

9. Campbell Stoll (Previous Rank: #8) – Elmbrook Swim Club – Arrowhead High School – Hartland, WI ** Verbally committed to lớn Texas**

Best Times:

100 fly: 51.89200 fly: 1:54.49200 IM: 1:57.47400 IM: 4:14.96100 back: 52.68200 back: 1:54.18100 breast: 1:01.51200 breast: 2:12.76

Stoll is an incredibly versatile prospect who had big butterfly drops over her junior year, including from 1:56.1 to lớn 1:54.4 in the 200-yard fly. (She also broke a minute in the 100 long course meter fly). It’ll be interesting to lớn see how college coaches view her primary events – Stoll could definitely become a fly/back type at the college level, but might project even better as an IMer after dropping about a second in the 200 im this year.

10. Julia Podkoscielny (Previous Rank: #9) – Pine Crest Swim Team – Pine Crest School – Fort Lauderdale, FL **Verbally committed to Florida**

Best Times:

400 IM: 4:08.01200 IM: 1:58.72200 back: 1:55.39100 back: 53.30200 free: 1:47.56

Podkoscielny is an outstanding 400 IMer – Sims’ top times tend khổng lồ warp our perspective on some of the others in the class, but 4:08 IMers as high school juniors are rare. Podkoscielny got there by dropping nearly five seconds since our last round of rankings. She doesn’t have great secondary or tertiary events yet, but could definitely develop in the backstrokes & 200 IM.

11. Miriam Sheehan (Previous Rank: N/A) – Dubuque Area Swimmin’ Hurricanes – Dubuque, IA **Verbally committed lớn NC State**

Best Times:

100 back: 52.30100 fly: 52.30100 free: 48.8950 free: 22.52200 back: 1:55.31

Sheehan didn’t make this menu last spring because she didn’t have the short course production khổng lồ match the rest of the đứng top 20, though her long course times were outstanding. Turns out, Sheehan had her eyes on bigger things than a top-20 ranking, & it paid off as she represented Puerto Rico in the Tokyo Olympics. Now, she’s coming back for the ranking she missed out on after a year of big short course drops (54.9 to 52.3 in the 100 fly; 56.0 lớn 52.3 in the 100 back; 23.9 to lớn 22.5 in the 50 free). With identical 100 fly và 100 back times, Sheehan should be an outstanding relay value with a great improvement curve.

12. Michaela Mattes (Previous Rank: #6) – Sarasota Sharks – Cardinal Mooney School – Sarasota, FL **Verbally committed khổng lồ Florida**

Best Times:

1650 free: 16:06.561000 free: 9:46.56500 free: 4:40.12200 free: 1:47.52400 IM: 4:14.09

Mattes has had great junior year drops (16:21 to 16:06 in the mile, 4:42.9 khổng lồ 4:40.1 in the 500) – her slide out of the top 10 has more to vị with the rest of the class going wild with time drops than any concerns over Mattes’ progression. She’s under NCAA scoring range in the 500 and just tenths off in the mile. She’s also had some nice drops in the 400 IM, which could turn out khổng lồ be a solid third sự kiện for her in the NCAA lineup.

13. Hannah Bellard (Previous Rank: HM) – Club Wolverine – Grosse Ile High School – Grosse Ile, mày **Verbally committed lớn Michigan**

Best Times:

200 fly: 1:55.17100 fly: 52.83500 free: 4:41.24200 free: 1:46.941000 free: 9:44.901650 free: 16:23.63400 IM: 4:14.21

Bellard has a fascinating phối of strokes and events in her đứng đầu times. The headliner (and the reason she sits at #13) is a 1:55.1 in the 200 fly, coming off a big two-second drop over her junior year. She’s made huge improvements in her speed, which was what we hoped khổng lồ see when ranking her as an honorable mention last year. But what we didn’t see coming were the huge rises in the 500 free, 1000 free, 1650 không tính phí and 400 IM. Now, it’s not totally clear what Bellard projects as at the college level, but it’s much clearer that she’s going to be a highly-valuable prospect.

14. Jillian Cox (Previous Rank: #14) – Longhorn Aquatics – Cedar Park, TX **Verbally committed khổng lồ Texas**

Best Times:

1650 free: 16:11.101000 free: 9:37.85500 free: 4:42.34200 free: 1:46.85

Yet another great distance swimmer in a great distance swimming class. Cox already has an NCAA invite time in the 500 không tính phí and in the mile, coming off of solid junior-year drops. Her 200 không tính phí is fast enough to add some relay value in the NCAA format, which is really how distance swimmers boost their recruiting stock khổng lồ an elite level. Cox dropped two full seconds in the 200 không lấy phí this past year, so her speed is coming around quickly.

15. JoJo Ramey (Previous Rank: N/A) – Fishers Area Swimming Tigers – Fishers High School – Fishers, IN **Verbally committed khổng lồ Florida**

Best Times:

200 back: 1:52.42200 free: 1:46.24500 free: 4:47.16100 back: 53.54

Ramey is the second new name lớn join our top 20 after going unranked in our sophomore report. She’s dropped more than four seconds in the 200 back since last year lớn smash into NCAA scoring range. In fact, she’s the #2 swimmer in the entire class in that event, behind only Sims. Now, Ramey just needs her other events lớn rise to lớn a similar level to make a huge move into the đứng top 10.

16. Caroline Bricker (Previous Rank: #7) – Colorado Springs Aquatics – Cheyenne Mountain High School – Colorado Springs, co **Verbally committed khổng lồ Stanford**

Best Times:

100 breast: 59.73200 breast: 2:10.63400 IM: 4:13.02200 IM: 1:59.37100 fly: 53.20200 fly: 1:56.71

Bricker was the vị trí cao nhất sprint breaststroker in the class at this time last year, but has stalled out a little with time drops in her primary events. She did make a small drop in the 200 breast & has had some nice development as a 100 flyer. A sub-minute breaststroker is always going lớn be a valuable high school recruit, & especially so in a thin class like this one. Bricker also carries nice versatility, with a lot of great non-breaststroke sự kiện options.

17. Eleanor Sun (Previous Rank: #15) – Nation’s Capital Swim Club – Stone Ridge School – Bethesda, MD **Verbally committed khổng lồ Princeton**

Best Times:

400 IM: 4:10.22200 fly: 1:56.86200 IM: 1:59.86

Sun is very specialized khổng lồ three events, but the bright side is that they work very well together in the NCAA lineup. The highlight is that 4:10 in the 400 lặng – college coaches love a great 400 IMer, trusting that they can channel the versatility and endurance into more NCAA-level events. Sun has dropped four seconds in the 400 yên since last year, so there’s a good chance she’s got other events about to pop in a similar way. She also cut two full seconds in the 200 fly.

18. Sophie Brison (Previous Rank: N/A) – Dynamo Club – Cambridge High School – Alpharetta, GA **Verbally committed khổng lồ Tennessee**

Best Times:

200 back: 1:53.29100 back: 53.94200 free: 1:46.86100 fly: 54.72400 IM: 4:14.68

Brison has really come around in the 200 back, dropping more than two seconds khổng lồ jump onto our top đôi mươi list. She also dropped about four seconds in the 400 IM, which may become a sneaky college event for her. For now, Brison projects well as a two-distance backstroker who could eventually contribute as a 200 freestyler on a relays.

19. Maddie Waggoner (Previous Rank: N/A) –Jersey Wahoos – Moorestown High School – Moorestown, NJ **Verbally committed khổng lồ Wisconsin**

Best Times:

500 free: 4:45.271000 free: 9:46.061650 free: 16:06.48200 back: 1:56.95

Waggoner has come up with massive drops since last year, including from 16:19 to 16:06 in the mile and from 4:50.0 khổng lồ 4:45.2 in the 500. That 1650 miễn phí is just tenths off of NCAA scoring level, which merits inclusion in our top 20.

20. Madison Smith (Previous Rank: N/A) – Rockville Montgomery Swim Club – Good Counsel High School – Brookeville, MD **Verbally committed khổng lồ Michigan**

Best Times:

1650 free: 16:21.601000 free: 9:49.45500 free: 4:44.62

Smith is yet another fast-dropping distance swimmer in a deep distance class. Check out these time drops: from 16:53 khổng lồ 16:21 in the mile, from 9:59 lớn 9:49 in the 1000 và from 4:54 to lớn 4:44 in the 500 free.


Paring the danh mục down to 20 always feels lượt thích pulling teeth. This isn’t an exhaustive list of others we considered, but the đứng đầu few left off the menu who made the decisions on 18-20 very difficult.

Jada Scott (Previous Rank: N/A)– Alamo Area Aquatic Association – Johnson High School – San Antonio, TX **Verbally committed lớn Alabama**

Best Times:

50 free: 22.66100 free: 48.69100 fly: 53.70

A great sprinter, just not quite versatile enough yet to crack the top 20. For a sprint-needy program, though, Scott would be much more valuable than some of the distance types in the top 20.

Alexa Fulton (Previous Rank: HM) – Upper Main Line YMCA – Downington East High School – Exton, PA **Verbally committed lớn Texas**

Best Times:

50 free: 22.46100 free: 49.04200 free: 1:47.29

Fulton is another relay-value swimmer who can swim all three relay distances. She dropped two seconds in the 200 không lấy phí this year.

Elizabeth Tilt (Previous Rank: N/A) – Chattahoochee Gold Swim Club – Lassiter High School – Marietta, GA **Verbally committed khổng lồ Kentucky**

Best Times:

400 IM: 4:12.01200 IM: 1:59.1550 free: 22.67100 free: 49.10200 free: 1:47.36100 fly: 53.30

Tilt is incredibly versatile with a 400 yên ổn that should make her a great college prospect. She dropped more than four seconds in that race as a junior.

Grace Rainey (Previous Rank: #11) – SwimMAC Carolina – William Amos Hough High School – Davidson, NC **Verbally committed to Florida**

Best Times:

400 IM: 4:12.88100 breast: 1:00.14200 breast: 2:10.13200 fly: 1:57.39200 IM: 1:59.14

Rainey was more of a 200 breaststroker last time around, but after dropping more than four seconds in the 400 IM, she’s now an yên type who could cross over into breaststroke, like an Ella Nelson/Brooke Forde type.

Maggie Schalow (Previous Rank: #20) – Irvine Novaquatics – Corona Del Mar High School – Corona del Mar, CA **Verbally committed to Virginia**

Best Times:

100 fly: 52.90200 fly: 1:56.85200 free: 1:47.38

Schalow remains a great two-distance butterflyer who broke 53 seconds for the first time as we were in-progress with these ranks.
