CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Once again, the Ivy League Champion Harvard men's swimming and diving team has been recognized for its outstanding efforts in the classroom this year, as the Crimson have earned College Swimming Coaches Association of America (CSCAA) Scholar All-America honors.

Harvard proved itself to be one of the top squads in the classroom, combining for a 3.44 GPA in the spring semester, the fifth-highest GPA among all NCAA Div. 1 men's swimming and diving programs. Only Ancient Eight rival Yale was higher.

The CSCAA Scholar All-America award is presented to college and university swimming and diving teams which have achieved a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or higher. The award is presented twice annually, once to teams achieving the standard in the fall semester and once for teams achieving the standard in the spring semester.
