CAMBRIDGE, Mass. -- Kate Mills, a senior on the women's swimming & diving team, has been named to the Capital One Academic All-District team, earning a spot on the second team.
A native of Sacramento, Calif., Mills was recently awarded an NCAA postgraduate scholarship, joining 58 senior winter student-athletes across all three NCAA divisions earning the award. A three-time College Swimming Coaches Association of America (CSCAA) All-Academic selection and an Academic All-Ivy League choice this winter, Mills qualified for the NCAA Championships three times during her career.
Mills earned All-Ivy League honors 12 times, including four all-conference second team accolades as a junior.
