MORGANTOWN, W.Va. - The West Virginia University women’s swimming and diving team was named a College Swimming Coaches Association of America (CSCAA) Scholar All-American team for its work in the classroom last spring.

The squad finished the spring semester with a 3.12 GPA, after finishing the fall with a 3.19 GPA.

“Doing well in the classroom always come first and I’m very proud of the women continuing their academic excellence,” coach Vic Riggs says. “Academics are a priority of the program and the success shows as this is the ninth-consecutive semester that the women have earned this honor.”

The award is presented to college and university swimming and diving teams, who have achieved a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or higher. The award is presented to teams achieving this standard in the fall and spring semester.
