March 18, 2014
NEWPORT NEWS, Va. – George Washington women’s swimming senior Caroline Myers was named to the 2014 Atlantic 10 Women’s Swimming and Diving Academic All-Conference Team, the league announced on Tuesday.
The award marks the third straight yearly accolade for Myers, who has been impressive both in the classroom as well as in the pool. A sport management major with a minor in public health, she has been named to the GW Athletics Academic Dean’s List and the A-10 Commissioner’s Honor Roll every semester throughout her career.
The Clearwater, Fla., native made a splash at the 2014 A-10 Swimming and Diving Championships when she took home her first individual gold medal in the 1,650-yard freestyle with a time of 16:35.61. She also claimed silver in the 500 free in 4:50.46 and swam the second leg of the eighth-place 800 free relay that set a new school record of 7:27.67.
To be nominated for the A-10 Swimming and Diving Academic All-Conference Team, student-athletes must possess a cumulative grade-point average of 3.0 or better on a 4.0 scale. Honorees are selected based on their performances in the pool as well as in the classroom, and are voted on by the league’s sports information directors.
