CC Swimming and Diving Ranks Third and Sixth Nationally In GPA

The Colorado College swimming and diving teams demonstrated their commitment to academic excellence by ranking third and sixth nationally among those earning Team Scholar All-America honors from the College Swimming Coaches Association of America for the 2014 spring semester.

Led by Emma Holmes ’15, who owns a 3.95 grade-point average in mathematics, the women's team finished third among Division III squads with a 3.65 combined GPA.

CC is one of only three teams from the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference to be recognized and one of only six from the state of Colorado. The Tigers posted the highest GPA on both lists.

Kaleb Roush ’14, who graduated with a 3.99 grade point in biochemistry with a minor in mathematics, helped the men place sixth in Division III and first in the state with a 3.48 GPA.

Colorado College is the only SCAC men’s team to earn the award and one of only three hailing from Colorado.

CC also is one of three Division III schools and one of only five overall in all three NCAA divisions to have both teams earn a spot in the top six on their respective list.

The award is presented twice annually to intercollegiate swimming and diving squads that achieve a cumulative grade-point average of 3.0 or higher.

Founded in 1922, the CSCAA is the nation's oldest professional organization of college coaches. Its mission is to serve and provide leadership for the advancement of the sport of swimming and diving at the collegiate level.
