WCSU Women’s Swimming and Diving team recognized
DANBURY, CONN. — The College Swimming Coaches Association of America (CSCAA) has recognized the Western Connecticut State University Women’s Swimming and Diving team with Scholar All American status. The achievement is based on the team’s cumulative 3.11 grade point average for the fall 2010 semester.
Head Coach Jill Cook said it takes a lot of talent and dedication to be a successful athlete and scholar.
“Our team has shown that having a successful balance of academics and athletics has helped them develop discipline in the classroom,” Cook said. “Our women’s swimming and diving team can excel in the classroom as well as in the pool — as evidenced by their recent performance at the New England Intercollegiate Swimming & Diving Association Championships.”
WestConn went 6-3 this past season and finished in a program-best third place in the Little East Conference Championship and sixth in the New England Intercollegiate Swimming and Diving Championship.
The CSCAA is the oldest coaches organization in America. In addition to Scholar All American Awards, the CSCAA recognizes All American Swimmers and Divers at the national championships every year.
