CSCAA Spring 2019 Scholar All-America Teams

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. –
The College Swimming and Diving Coaches Association (CSCAA) has named the Bridgewater College men's and women's swimming teams to its Scholar All-America team list for the spring 2019 semester.

The Eagle women achieved a team GPA of 3.48, while the men- in their second varsity season- had a team GPA of 3.03.

"Coach [Gwynn] Harrison has built a program the college can be proud of- in the pool, the classroom and community," said CSCAA Executive Director Greg Earhart.

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," 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."

In Division III, academic honors went to 134 men's and 185 women's teams. 

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.
