CSCAA Recognizes WestConn Men's And Women's Swimming and Diving For Academics

Colorado Springs, CO – The College Swimming and Diving Coaches Association (CSCAA) has named the Western Connecticut State University men's and women's swimming and diving teams, coached by Jill Cook, to its Scholar All-America team for the Spring 2019 Semester.  A record 480 institutions were named to the list.
 
CSCAA Executive Director Greg Earhart noted: "Coach Cook has built a program the university can be proud of - in the pool, the classroom and community."
 
A record number of teams achieved Scholar All-America status in each NCAA Division with men's teams seeing the biggest gains.  The increase can be attributed to the growing number of men's teams.  "For three years now, we've seen schools add more men's teams than women's," explained Earhart, "and now we're seeing those new teams produce the caliber of student-athlete we've come to expect in swimming and diving."
 
At 3.45, the median GPA among women's teams was the highest on record.  The men's median (3.23) was down slightly from the Fall semester.
 
The CSCAA will announce its individual Scholar All-Americans next week.
 
About the CSCAA
Founded in 1922, the College Swimming Coaches Association of America (CSCAA) – the first organization of college coaches in America – is a professional organization of college swimming and diving coaches dedicated to serving and providing leadership for the advancement of the sport of swimming & diving at the collegiate level.
