Auburn Swimming and Diving Earns Academic All-America
April 18, 2002
AUBURN- The Auburn University men's and women's swimming and diving team has earned the honor of College Swimming Coaches Association of America Academic All-America Swimming Team for the Winter/Spring semester of 2002 as announced by the CSCAA.
This is the seventh time Auburn has been awarded All-America status in the classroom with the most recent time coming in 1998. With the men's and women's teams both qualifying, the 2002 squad becomes just the fifth AU team to achieve the award with the combined effort.
"It has been several seasons since achieving this level," head swim coach David Marsh said. "This is based on an effort by the team, academic counselor Virgil Starks and our entire staff. I am very pleased with the men's and women's teams both attaining this level and I hope that this award becomes something that we consider a standard."
To qualify for the honor, the grade point average of the entire swimming and diving team must average at least a 2.8 on a 4.0 scale.
