HILLSBORO, Ore. – Thirteen Northwest Conference men’s and women’s swimming programs have been named to the College Swimming and Diving Coaches Association (CSCAA) Scholar All-America team for the Spring 2019 semester. The CSCAA recognizes those teams achieving a GPA of 3.0 or higher for the semester. A total of 480 institutions from all divisions, including NAIA and NJCAA, were honored.
"For three years now, we've seen schools add more men's teams than women's," noted CSCAA Executive Director Greg 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.
