Senior Jason Louser was selected as a News 12 Scholar-Athlete. He is one of only 30 outstanding Long Island high school seniors to receive this prestigious award for excellence in athletics, academics, leadership and community service. In addition to receiving a $1,000 scholarship check, Jason was featured on News 12.

A gifted student-athlete, Jason’s GPA is 92 and he is a member of the National Honor Society and the Global Awareness Club. His swimming accomplishments started when he watched the 2008 Olympics and witnessed Michael Phelps’ numerous gold medal moments. From there, he wanted to accomplish that too. This year, Jason won the Suffolk County championship in the 500-yard freestyle and the 100-yard breast stroke competitions; set records in the 200-yard Individual Medley and 100-yard breast stroke at the state level; placed second at the Winter Nationals in the 400-yard IM and has been named the 18 and under National Champion.

He is now qualified to compete in the 2020 Olympic trials.

Jason looks forward to continuing his academic and athletic achievements at the University of California in the fall.
