CSCAA Men’s All-America Teams | CSCAA Women’s All-America Teams
The Team Scholar All-America award is presented to college and university swimming and diving teams, who have achieved a cumulative grade-point average of 3.0 or higher. Last fall the women’s squad boasted a 3.19 cumulative GPA while the men combined for a 3.00. It marks the fourth straight year that both programs received the academic nod.
“Our men’s and women's swimming teams have a strong tradition of academic excellence and serve as proud representatives of our department and university,” said Karen Ercole, Associate Athletic Director for Educational Support Services. “We congratulate them on their continued hard work and dedication to success both in the pool and in the classroom.”
The Buff and Blue men’s and women’s swimming teams finished fourth and fifth, respectively, at the 2012-13 A-10 Championships last month.
