GW Men's and Women's Swimming Tabbed CSCAA Scholar All-America Teams
Colonials Squads Tabbed Top Academic Programs for Spring 2013 Semester
July 22, 2013
WASHINGTON - George Washington's men's and women's swimming programs have been named College Swimming Coaches Association of America (CSCAA) Scholar All-America Teams for the 2013 spring semester, the sport's governing body announced. It marks the second time this academic year that both Colonials' teams were honored, as the Buff and Blue earned the same award for the Fall 2012 semester.
The CSCAA Team Scholar All-America honor is awarded to college and university swimming and diving teams who have achieved a cumulative grade-point average of 3.0 or higher. This past spring, the GW women's squad boasted a cumulative GPA of 3.21 while the men's team combined for a 3.10.
"Continuing our academic excellence has always been a top goal for this athletics department, as well as our swimming programs," said Head Coach Dan Rhinehart. "I am proud of the teams' accomplishments and look forward to reaching even higher goals in the future."
Following the 2012-13 Atlantic 10 Championships in February, then-juniors Caroline Myers and Jake Mortensen and senior Phillip Graeter ('13) were named to their respective A-10 All-Academic teams. Additionally, the women's program saw eight student-athletes named to the Spring 2013 A-10 Commissioner's Honor Roll, and the men's team landed six on the list.
Graeter - who graduated in May - became the first-ever GW swimming student-athlete to be named a CoSIDA/Capital One Academic All-America by earning At-Large Third Team honors in June after being selected to the All-District First Team in May for the second consecutive year. He was also named 2012-13 Atlantic 10 Male Co-Scholar-Athlete of the Year in July, becoming the first male swimmer in conference history to earn the distinguished award.
The CSCAA Team Scholar All-America award is presented twice annually, once following the fall semester and again at the completion of the spring semester.
