High Geehr

November 15, 2000

NEWPORT BEACH - Newport Harbor High junior Carly Geehr has been

named Scholastic All-American by U.S. Swimming, based on her fourth-place

finish at the 1999 U.S. Nationals in Minneapolis where she clocked a

2:01.77 in the 200-meter freestyle, and a 4.0 (unweighted) GPA as a

student at Harbor.

The combination places her second overall in terms of scholastic

All-Americans selected.


The 15-year-old Geehr, who was sidelined most of the '99-00 season

with a torn rotator cuff, is expected to be one of the major cogs in

Newport's quest for CIF glory this spring.

She trains with Irvine Novaquatics and Coach Dave Salo.
