The College Swimming Coaches Association of America (CSCAA) announced its Scholar All-America teams for the 2016 fall semester and once again, the Sweet Briar College swim team has made the list.
The SBC swim team registered a 3.04 GPA during the fall semester and in doing so, join foes Bridgewater, Emory & Henry, Greensboro, Hollins, and Washington & Lee as the only Old Dominion Athletic Conference schools honored.
To be considered for the Scholar All-America honor, the team must have achieved a 3.0 GPA or better during the 2016 fall semester.
In total 638 teams across NCAA Division I, II, III, NAIA, and NJCAA were named Scholar All-America teams by CSCAA. That sets a new record for the number of teams the organization has recognized in one semester. Of those 638 teams, 109 were Division III women's teams like Sweet Briar.
Sweet swimming will return to the pool this Friday, when they travel to Ferrum for a duel beginning at 6 p.m. This will serve as the Vixens final tuneup before the ODAC Championships, held Feb. 9-12 in Greensboro, N.C.
