COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – The College Swimming and Diving Coaches Association (CSCAA) has named the Hood College men's swimming team 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 Feinberg shows that students can combine success in the pool and the classroom."
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.
In Division III, a total of 134 men's and 185 women's teams earned the honor. Among men's teams, MIT once again led the way (3.76), just ahead of the Macalester men. The Liberty League placed the most teams (nine men, none women) onto the honor roll. University Athletic Association and NESCAC followed with sixteen teams each with the UAA achieving 100 percent recognition.
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.
