WASHINGTON - The Georgetown University men's and women's swimming & diving team each earned Spring 2015 Scholar All-America honors from the College Swimming Coaches Association of America (CSCAA) when awards were announced on Tuesday. The Hoya men's and women's program each earned Fall 2014 honors.
The Spring Team Scholar All-American award is presented to college and university swimming and diving teams, who have achieved a team grade point average of 3.0 or higher in the spring semester/quarter. Overall, a record 406 institutions and over 600 teams earned the distinction.
"This honor is a statement to all the hard work our swimmers and divers put in both the classroom and the pool," Head Coach Jamie Holder said. "Our goal is to provide the best balance between academics and athletics and strive for excellence in both arenas."
In addition to earning the fall academic honor, the Hoyas excelled in the pool during the 2014-15 season. The Hoyas were strong during the BIG EAST Championships where the men's and women's team both finished second overall. The finish ties the program's best overall performance at the conference championship from the 2013-14.
Founded in 1922, the College Swimming Coaches Association of America is the oldest professional organization of college coaches in America. The CSCAA is dedicated to serving and providing leadership for the advancement of the sport of swimming and diving at the collegiate level.
