Fischer ends as 20-time All-American

Staff Reports

Carson High graduate Rebecca Fischer ended her college career as a 20-time All-American for the University of North Dakota women’s swim team.

At the NCAA Division II Championships this past weekend in Orlando, Fla., Fischer, a team captain, helped the Fighting Sioux to a fifth place finish. She anchored the 200, 400 and 800 yard freestyle relays to All-American finishes. She also finished in the top eight in the 100 and 200 breaststrokes and the 400 individual medleys to be named as an All-American in those events.

“It has been a great four years swimming for the University of North Dakota,” Fischer said. “I will miss the friendships and swimming for a great university, but now it is time to concentrate on my career.

“Having 20 All-American certificates on my office wall should have some effect on those swimmers I will recruit.”

Fischer plans a career as a college swimming coach.
