COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - For the 22nd consecutive semester, the Catholic University men's and women's swimming teams have been honored as a Scholar All-America Team by the College Swimming Coaches Association of America (CSCAA).
"Paul Waas has humbly built a program the University can be proud of - in the pool, the classroom and as alumni," said CSCAA Executive Director Greg Earhart.
The women boasted a 3.39 grade-point average for the Spring 2019 semester while the men posted a 3.36 GPA which was the highest among the eight Landmark Conference schools that sponsor swimming. A total of 134 men's and 185 women's teams were honored in Division III.
A record 777 teams, representing 480 institutions in Division I, II, III, NAIA and NJCAA were named to the Scholar All-America teams for the Spring 2019 Semester. The CSCAA recognizes those teams achieving a GPA of 3.0 or higher for the semester. At 3.45, the median GPA among women's teams was the highest on record. The men's median of 3.23 was down slightly from the Fall.
Founded in 1922, the 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.
