SALT LAKE CITY - The Utah men's and women's swimming and diving teams have been selected as Scholar All-America Teams by the College Swimming Coaches Association of America.
The Utah men's team had a 3.31 grade point average during the spring 2014 semester, the 15th-best GPA in the NCAA and the second-best GPA in the Pac-12. The Utah women had a 3.26 GPA.
"I am extremely proud of the work that our teams have put in, improving not only in the pool but in the classroom," Utah head coach Joe Dykstra said. "That success in both areas is what makes an elite student-athlete."
The Scholar All-America Team award is presented to collegiate teams that have achieved a team grade point average of 3.0 or higher. The award is presented twice annually, once in the fall semester and again in the spring to recognize teams achieving a 3.0 in the semester.
Founded in 1922, the College Swimming Coaches Association of America is the oldest professional organization of college coaches in America. The CSCAA is dedicated to serving and providing leadership for the advancement of the sport of swimming and diving at the collegiate level.
