Harvard has found success both in and out of the pool this season. (Gil Talbot)
CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – The Harvard men's swimming and diving team, which looks to defend its Ivy League crown this week at Princeton, has been recognized for its outstanding efforts in the classroom during the year, earning College Swimming Coaches Association of America (CSCAA) Scholar All-America honors.
The Crimson proved itself to be one of the top squads in the classroom, combining for a 3.45 GPA in the fall semester, the fifth highest GPA among all NCAA Div. 1 men's swimming and diving programs, and an improvement over its GPA at this time last year.
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.
