Hoosier swimming and diving teams earn All-America honors

Both the men’s and women’s swimming and diving teams were named Scholar All-America teams Wednesday by the College Swimming Coaches Association of America.

“Academics are always the number one priority at Indiana University as stated in the spirit of Indiana doctrine,” IU Swimming Coach Ray Looze said in a press release from IU Athletics. “With this in mind, we are very proud of both our men’s and women’s swimming and diving teams for their outstanding work in the classroom last fall.”

To qualify for Scholar All-America honors a program must have an average grade point average of 3.00 or better in the fall semester.

This season a record 638 teams at 394 schools were awarded the recognition. Of the CSCAA programs, 73 percent recorded GPAs higher than 3.00, and 91 percent of Division I women’s teams hit this number as well.
