Fort Lauderdale, Florida - The Ohio State women's swimming and diving program has earned top recognition from the College Swimming Coaches Association of America (CSCAA) in its 2012 Scholar All-American program.
The Buckeye women, with a 3.38 team grade-point average during Autumn Quarter, were recognized as Team Scholar All-American winners for Division I. 25 Buckeyes individually had at least a 3.0 GPA for the quarter.
"Bill (Dorenkott, head coach) and I are really proud of our team's efforts in the classroom this past fall," said associate head coach Stefanie Williams of the continued academic excellence.
"Our athletic department provides the resources for our student-athletes to be successful. It's not a coincidence that when you have highly motivated students in a competitive environment with unlimited opportunities the results will speak for themselves."
The CSCAA Team Scholar All-American award is presented to college and university swimming and diving teams that have achieved a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or higher in both the autumn and again in the winter/spring semesters or quarters.
