Swim & Dive Earns CSCAA Scholar All-America

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. –  The No.15/25 Florida State swimming and diving teams were named to the CSCAA Scholar All-America Team on Wednesday by the College Swimming and Diving Coaches Association of America for the Fall of 2019.

“We are so happy about our grades last semester,” FSU head coach Neal Studd said. “Our student-athletes did an amazing job. Our academic staff has been outstanding and we appreciate their hard work and all they do for our team.”

The No. 25 women’s team boasted a term GPA of 3.51, which ranks fourth in the ACC behind Duke (3.61), NC State (3.58), and Louisville (3.52). The women also had the highest GPA among Power 5 teams in Florida, and the third highest overall. This is the women’s seventh-straight honor, while the men earned their second-straight and fourth under Studd.

The No. 15 men’s team turned in a GPA of 3.41, which was a .40 improvement from Spring 2019 (3.01).

Between both teams, 27 student-athletes made the Dean’s List and eight earned a spot on the President’s List.

A total of 762 programs were selected across all NCAA Divisions, NAIA and NJCAA as Scholar All-Americans. To be eligible, teams must have an overall GPA of 3.0.

Florida State will next compete at the Auburn Invite, which runs from Feb. 7-9.
