1992 Girls Swimming & Diving Team

The 1991-92 team was a star-studded group that won the National Girls Prep Team Championship. Every year, Swimming World Magazine compares the nation’s top 12 scholastic times in every event and provides corresponding scores, similar to a meet. That winter, the Patriots won the Easterns Interscholastic Swimming & Diving Championships and their times allowed them to score major points on the national level.

GA won Easterns by scoring 317.5 points. The Patriots were led by Karen Bunting '94, who won the 200-yard freestyle (1:49.76) and the 500-yard freestyle (4:51.47), and Danielle Strader, who won the 50-yard freestyle (23.60) and 100-butterfly (55.72).

GA's also won the 200-freestyle relay (Dianna Metzger Groff '95, Bunting, Strader, Valerie Davis Missick '94) with a time of 1:36.59 and the 400-freestyle relay (Strader, Groff, Bunting, Mayuka Noda '93) with a time of 3:27.45.

That year, Strader and Bunting qualified for the U.S. Olympic Time Trials and Noda qualified for the Japanese Olympic Time Trials.

Many of the swimmers went on to earn scholarships to Division I schools, including Michigan, University of Georgia, UCLA, Notre Dame, SUNY Buffalo, and Villanova.
