“Our coaching staff continues to be so proud of how our team balances their performance in the classroom and their competitiveness in the pool,” said head coach Jon Carlson. “We try to stress to our kids that they are student-athletes, with student being the higher priority. It’s fantastic for these six to earn this type of award, as it shows that it is certainly possible to be a top-tier athlete, while maintaining the drive it takes to be a top-tier student as well.”
