Colorado Springs, Colo. – The College Swimming and Diving Coaches Association of America (CSCAA) has named the Williams College men's and women's swimming and diving teams 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 Steve Kuster continues to contend for titles in one of the most competitive academic and athletic environments anywhere."
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."
The Eph men's team recorded a team GPA of 3.50, while the Ephs women had a team GPA of 3.69.
