Swimming & Diving Receives CSCAA Scholar All-America Team Award

Official CSCAA Scholar All-America Team Award

The Liberty swimming & diving team continues to excel in the classroom, 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 638 college and university swimming & diving teams, covering NCAA, NAIA and NJCAA levels. 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 third time in CSCAA history that 600 or more squads have earned Scholar All-America Team honors.

The Lady Flames earned a 3.33 team GPA during the fall of 2016, the second semester in a row in which they obtained a 3.33 average. Eight out of the 10 CCSA women's swimming & diving teams appear on the most recent CSCAA Scholar All-America Team listing.

Since the start of the 2011-12 academic year, Liberty has now earned CSCAA academic recognition during each of the past 11 semesters.
