COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – The College Swimming and Diving Coaches Association of America (CSCAA) recently announced its Scholar All-America Team for the 2020 spring semester. The Gustavus men and women were two of 789 programs from 461 institutions to receive recognition. Teams were selected on the basis of their spring grade point averages and represent 17,982 student-athletes.

Additional institutional adjustments to grading systems resulted in GPAs nearly one-quarter letter grade higher than previously. As a result, the CSCAA did not publish team GPAs. This semester’s list also does not include teams at institutions that switched entirely to pass/fail grading.

Founded in 1922, the College Swimming and Diving Coaches Association of America (CSCAA), is the nation’s first organization of college coaches. The mission of the CSCAA is to advance the sport of swimming and diving with coaches at the epicenter of leadership, advocacy, and professional development.
