FGCU Receives Ninth CSCAA Scholar All-America Team Title

by Danny Hunt
FORT MYERS, Fla. – Marking the ninth time in program history, the FGCU swimming & diving team was named to the list of 2015 College Swimming Coaches Association of America (CSCAA) Spring Scholar All-America Teams, as announced by CSCAA officials Tuesday morning.

The Spring Team Scholar All-America award is presented to college and university swimming & diving teams that have achieved a grade point average of 3.0 or higher in the semester coinciding with the NCAA Swimming and Diving Championship.

The Green and Blue continued their streak with the ninth consecutive semester of receiving the honor after posting a 3.45 GPA for the spring semester.

“I’m very excited that my ladies continue their tradition of excellence in the classroom even as we have taken the athletic performance to new heights,” said head coach Neal Studd. “I am lucky to coach such an outstanding group of student-athletes and we are all very proud of their achievements.”

The success the Eagles saw in the classroom matched that of their accomplishments in the water as they ended the season with a 10-2 (4-0 CCSA) record, beat numerous high-major programs, captured their sixth title at the Coastal Collegiate Swimming Association (CCSA) Championship and placed a mid-major best 26th at the NCAA Swimming and Diving Championship. Over the year the Eagles set 10 program records.
