FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. –Ten University of Arkansas swimmers and divers were named to the College Swimming Coaches Association (CSCAA) Scholar All-America Team last Wednesday. The announcement comes one day after the CSCAA named Arkansas women’s program the second highest grade point average in the nation with a 3.67 GPA.
“It is part of our core values to have excellence in the classroom,” Arkansas head coach Sean Schimmel said. “I am extremely proud of these 10 women being honored on the Scholar All-America Team while leading our program to a No. 2 team ranking. Our squad has a great amount of pride in regards to their academic and athletic success while representing the Razorbacks. These honors are a reflection of the dedication we have to achieving our best and having a Championship Culture in all aspects of our lives.”
All-American Nikki Daniels along with Liz Braun, Anna Mayfield, Chelsea Tatlow, Maddie Monroe, Rachel Stoehr, and Susanna White earned first-team honors while Aiden Lister, Hannah Bortnick and Yuliya Banach earned honorable mention recognition.
To be selected to the CSCAA Scholar All-America Team, swimmers and divers must have achieved a GPA of 3.50 or higher and have participated in their respective NCAA Swimming and Diving Championships. Student-athletes must have been on the varsity team for at least two seasons and they must have completed 24 semester or 36 quarter hours of credit toward a degree. Honorable Mention selections have similarly achieved a GPA of 3.50 and achieved a “B” time standard or completed their respective qualifying meets.
Arkansas swimming and diving team also led the Razorbacks with 10 selections on the SEC First-Year Academic Honor Roll released by the league last week.
