• CSCAA NCAA Division I Scholar All-America Team
MADISON, Wis. – UW head coach Whitney Hite has always stressed the importance of handling business both in the pool and in the classroom.
On Thursday, those wishes came to fruition for six members of the Badgers’ women’s swimming squad, as the College Swimming Coaches Association of America (CSCAA) announced the 2013 CSCAA Scholar All-America Teams and Individual Scholar All-Americans supported by Nike..
Sophomore Ivy Martin, junior Rebecka Palm and senior Hannah Ross were all named first-team CSCAA Swimming and Diving Scholar All-Americans, as each earned a cumulative grade point average higher than 3.5, while also competing at this season’s national championships.
Seniors Monika Stitski, Jennah Haney and Paulina Gralow, all earned honorable-mention CSCAA Swimming and Diving Scholar All-American honors. The trio each earned a cumulative 3.5 grade point average and have achieved a “B” time standard, but have not qualified to compete in their respective national championship.
The women's team, which earned a combined 3.25 GPA this academic year, was also recognized as a CSCAA Team Scholar All-America honoree.
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.
