The Hamilton College men's and women's swimming and diving teams have received Scholar All-America recognition from the College Swimming & Diving Coaches Association of America.
Each Navy program was named as a Scholar All-America Team for having attained a cumulative grade-point average of at least 3.00 during the recently completed term. The Duke men were second among all ACC institutions with a combined grade point average of 3.25 for the semester while the women compiled a 3.46 team grade point average to tie for fourth among conference teams.
"At GW, we are committed to a great student-athlete experience, and we have high expectations in the classroom, pool, and community for our teams", said head coach James Winchester. The individual selections recognize students that have achieved a grade point average of 3.50 or higher and have participated in their respective NCAA Championships.
Arkansas also saw three receive honorable mention status, as Sydney Angell, Madison Strathman and Caroline Welch picked up the honor by earning a 3.50 GPA or higher and achieving a "B" time standard or competed at a regional or zone qualifying meet. Brooks finished his career as a four-time CSCAA honorable mention Scholar All-American while Amaltdinov and Toetz were both recognized for the third time. Providence College was among the list of programs recognized on both the men's and women's sides. Komlenic and Thomas set new Purdue records in the backstroke events at the Big Ten Championships.
The biannual award is announced after the Fall and Spring academic seasons.
