Swimming & Diving Earns CSCAA Scholar All-America Honors
North Texas Tied For First Among Texas Schools, Second Among C-USA Schools In Team GPA
The North Texas swimming and diving team has once again been honored for their academic accomplishments during the spring semester.
The College Swimming Coaches Association of America (CSCAA) announced that North Texas was one of 658 swimming and diving teams, representing 388 colleges and universities, to be selected as a Scholar All-America team, an honor that the program has received each year since 2005.
It is only the second time in the program's 30+ year history of the program that more than 600 teams has achieved such an honor.
"I'm very proud of our team and our culture here at North Texas," head coach Brendon Bray said. "We had another outstanding semester and that is due to our team's hard work and focus on academics."
To be selected as a CSCAA Scholar All-America Team, programs must have achieved a grade point average of 3.00 or higher over the spring semester. The North Texas women combined to record a 3.50 team grade point average, tied for first among schools in Texas and tied for second among Conference USA schools.
For the spring, 28 members of the North Texas swimming and diving team recorded a GPA of 3.00 or higher, including 20 who achieved a 3.50 or higher and seven who achieved a 4.0. During the winter, junior Samantha Scheck was named to the 13-member Conference USA All-Academic Team.
