Evanston, Ill. – The St. Mary's College of Maryland women's swim team was one of 130 NCAA Division III swimming programs recognized by College Swimming Coaches Association of America (CSCAA) as a Scholar All-America Team for its excellence in the classroom during the 2011 fall semester.
St. Mary's achieved a 3.25 team cumulative grade point average during the fall semester. The Seahawks were one of three teams to represent the Capital Athletic Conference as Salisbury University (3.32 GPA) and Marymount (Va.) University (3.02 GPA) also made the cut.
The Scholar All-America Team Award is presented to college and university swimming and diving teams, who have achieved a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or higher. The award is presented to teams achieving this standard in the fall semester and in the semester of the NCAA Swimming & Diving Championships (Winter/Spring).
