STORRS, Conn. – The University of Connecticut women’s swimming and diving team has been recognized as a College Swimming Coaches Association of America (CSCAA) Scholar All-American, as announced by the organization on Wednesday.
The Huskies earned the accolade after they achieved a grade point average of at least 3.0 in the 2015 fall semester. UConn finished the semester with a GPA of 3.38, as they joined 148 other Division I schools that met the criteria for the award.
“I am proud of the accomplishments of our women’s team,” head coach Bob Goldberg said. “This is one of our best semesters we have had in the classroom.”
Connecticut is enjoying a successful season in the pool this year, having recently taken first place at the Copa Coqui Invitational in San Juan, Puerto Rico over winter break. The Huskies are preparing for a dual meet against Dartmouth on Saturday, Jan. 30, which will also serve as Senior Day.
The CSCAA currently stands as the oldest organization of college coaches in America. Its purpose is to serve and provide leadership for the advancement of swimming at the collegiate level.
