CSCAA Official Release

Liberty swimming received further recognition for strong academics this week, when Brye Ravettine was named a College Swimming Coaches Association of America (CSCAA) Scholar All-America award recipient.

Ravettine is Liberty's first Scholar All-American, as she has obtained a 3.7 cumulative GPA through the 2011-12 academic year. Last week, she was also named to the VaSID Academic All-State team. 

A redshirt sophomore from Mahwah, N.J., Ravettine had a standout season in which she became Liberty's first All-American with a 13th-place finish in the 50 freestyle at the NCAA Division I Swimming and Diving Championships. She was named CCSA Swimmer of the Year and Swimmer of the Meet, and recently became Liberty's first swimmer to compete in the U.S. Olympic Team Trials.

The Scholar All-America award is given to college swimmers and divers who have earned a 3.5 cumulative GPA or higher, and have qualified for the national championship. Honorable mention is given to college swimmers and divers with a 3.5 GPA or higher who attained a "B" standard but were not invited to the national championship.

As a team, the Lady Flames earned the CSCAA Scholar All-America Team Award for both of the Fall 2011 and Spring 2012 semesters.
