Scholar All-America Honors Awarded to Swimming & Diving Team
Statesboro, Ga. - The College Swimming Coaches Association of America (CSCAA) announced its Scholar All-America teams for the fall 2011 semester and the Georgia Southern Swimming and Diving team has been honored for the eighth-straight semester. The CSCAA ranks all NCAA Division I teams twice a year, once each academic term, and 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 3.29 grade point average and finished ahead of Vanderbilt, Duke, and Harvard. Seven members of the Swimming and Diving team earned a perfect 4.0 grade point average last semester and six made the Dean's List with GPAs above 3.5.
"I am very proud of our women for earning CSCAA Scholar-All Academic team this past fall semester," said Georgia Southern Head Coach Nate Kellogg. "It is a testament to what our team values and the high level of focus and commitment our swimmers and divers have as student-athletes."
