Record 720 Swimming & Diving Teams Named CSCAA Scholar All-Americans

The College Swimming & Diving Coaches Association of America (CSCAA) announced today that a total of 720 swimming & diving teams have received Scholar All-American recognition, the highest total in the history of the association and the first time the total has exceeded 700. During the 2017 spring semester, the 720 teams achieved a grade point of 3.0 or higher.

One of the main reasons why the number of teams is at an all-time high is that we’re seeing a growth in the sport as a whole. The number of institutions supporting swim & dive programs is at a ten year high. The three programs who just had their inaugural season – Salem International University, University of Ozarks and McKendree University – all posted the highest or second highest GPA in their respective division.

On the men’s side the Ivy League led the way in Division I, with Harvard, Dartmouth and Brown posting the top three averages. Harvard led with a 3.57 GPA. Division II was led by Urbana College who posted a 3.69 GPA, just ahead of Salem (3.67). In Division III Ozarks tied Vassar College for the highest average with 3.71. SCAD-Savannah (3.63) and the Fashion Institute of Technology (3.84) led all NAIA and NJCAA teams respectively.

For women it was Brown at the top of the heap in Division I, posting an average of 3.77 to beat out South Carolina and Northern Iowa (both 3.71). McKendree posted a perfect 4.00 for the top spot in Division II (four person team), and Connecticut College (3.78) led the way in Division III. In the NAIA Tabor College led the way with a 3.61 while the Fashion Institute of Technology earned a 3.34 to lead all Junior Colleges.

The only notable mens teams missing – Arizona, Wisconsin, Auburn and suprisingly California. Are any top womens teams missing?

Well look at that McKendree team…4.0 for the women. Wonder if that’s ever happened?

Raise the standards in order to make it meaningful and prestigious. Or is the a “Everyone is a winner and gets a little trophy” mentality? What a joke.
