LANCASTER, Pa. – Franklin & Marshall's men's and women's swimming teams each earned Scholar All-America Recognition by the College Swimming & Diving Coaches Association of America (CSCAA), announced on Wednesday. The award recognizes collegiate swimming and diving teams that have achieved a team grade point average of 3.0 or higher.
The Diplomats' women's team accumulated a 3.30 GPA while the men's side posted a 3.26 GPA for the 2017 spring semester. Each squad garnered the award following the fall semester as well, marking the 15th consecutive year the women's team earned the honor while the men's team returned to the list for the first time since 2012.
The distinction is presented twice annually, once in the fall semester and again in the spring to recognize teams achieving a 3.0 in the semester coinciding with the NCAA/NAIA/NJCAA/CCCAA Swimming and Diving Championships.
