D&E swimming teams honored for academic success
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — The College Swimming and Diving Coaches Association of America (CSCAA) has selected the Davis & Elkins College men’s and women’s swimming teams for Scholar All-American honors.
Davis & Elkins was one of 461 schools to receive the award for the spring semester. Teams were selected on the basis of their Spring grade point averages and represent 17,982 student-athletes.
No team was unaffected by this Spring’s pandemic but Athletic Director Joss and President Wood can and should be proud of their swimming programs and the work of Coach Rose” CSCAA Executive Director Greg Earhart said.
Additional institutional adjustments to grading systems resulted in GPAs nearly one-quarter letter grade higher than previously. As a result, the CSCAA will not be publishing team GPAs. This semester’s list also does not include teams at institutions that switched entirely to pass/fail grading.
Nine teams earned the honor for the first time. These include men’s teams at Anderson University, Eastern Connecticut, Lynchburg, Montevallo and Saint Joseph’s (CT). Women’s team earning the award for the first time include Bethel University (IN) and George Fox.
