Swimming & Diving Team Named CSCAA Scholar All-America
STATESBORO, Ga. - The College Swimming Coaches Association of America (CSCAA) announced its Scholar All-America teams for the spring 2012 semester and the Georgia Southern Swimming and Diving team has been honored for the ninth-straight semester.
"Earning Scholar All-America Honors for the ninth consecutive semester is a very special honor for our team," said Georgia Southern Head Coach Nate Kellogg. “It is always one of our team goals and I am thrilled we were able to achieve that goal during the spring semester.”
The CSCAA ranks all NCAA Division I teams twice a year, once after each academic term. Teams with a grade point average of 3.0 or higher are named to the distinguished CSCAA Scholar All-America list. With the current Scholar All-America program in place since 2008, the Eagles have been included each and every semester.
The Georgia Southern swimmers and divers posted an impressive 3.37 grade point average and finished among the top-50 Division I programs in the country. The Eagles improved their mark from the 2011 fall semester of 3.29. Six members of the Swimming and Diving team earned a perfect 4.0 grade point average in the spring while 13 made the Dean's List with GPAs above 3.5. As a whole, Georgia Southern's Athletics teams posted their highest composite grade point average in department history with a 3.00 GPA for the Spring 2012 semester and a 2.96 for the 2011-2012 academic year.
