Swimming & Diving Receives CSCAA Scholar All-America Team Award

Official CSCAA Release

For the 10th semester in a row, the Liberty swimming & diving team was honored for academic excellence, earning the College Swimming Coaches Association of America (CSCAA) Scholar All-America Team award.

The CSCAA announced its Scholar All-America Team awards, which were received by 658 college and university swimming & diving teams, covering NCAA, NAIA and NJCAA. In order to qualify for the award, a team must have achieved a cumulative team grade point average of 3.0 or higher during the previous semester. This marks just the second time in CSCAA history that 600 or more squads have earned Scholar All-America Team honors.

The Lady Flames posted a 3.33 team GPA during the spring of 2016. Liberty is one of five Coastal Collegiate Sports Association (CCSA) women's swimming & diving teams to appear on the most recent Scholar All-America Team list.

Since the start of the 2011-12 academic year, Liberty has now earned CSCAA academic recognition during each of the past 10 semesters.
