Women’s Swimming & Diving Honored by CSCAA for Hard Work in the Classroom
CHICAGO, Ill. – After producing six school records at the University Athletic Association Championship this past weekend, the Case Western Reserve University women's swimming & diving team is now being honored for its performance in the classroom. For the second-consecutive year, the Spartans were named to the annual College Swimming Coaches Association of America (CSCAA) Scholar All-America Team list.
During the 25th-Annual UAA Championship at Case, the Spartan women finished seventh in a field loaded with nationally-ranked squads and broke four individual school records as well as two relay marks.
While their accomplishments in the pool have been more than noteworthy, the Spartans are also getting it done in the classroom.
According to the CSCAA compiled report for NCAA Division III, the team posted a team grade point average of 3.31 for the fall semester.
Earlier this winter, a total of nine women's swimming student-athletes were honored as UAA All-Academic honorees. To be selected, a student-athlete must have a 3.3 GPA and be of sophomore or higher status academically.
The Team Scholar All-American award is presented to college and university swimming & diving teams that have achieved a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher. The distinction is presented annually to teams achieving this standard in the fall semester, and in the semester of the NCAA Swimming and Diving Championships (Winter/Spring).
The CSCAA is the oldest coaches' organization in America. In addition to Scholar All-American Awards, the CSCAA recognizes All-American Swimmers and Divers at the NCAA National Championships each year.
