Calvin Swimming and Diving Teams Named to CSCAA Scholar All-America Honor Roll for 2017 Fall Semester

The Calvin men's and women's swimming and diving teams have not only produced in the pool but also in the classroom. Both teams were recently named to the College Swimming Coaches Association of America Scholar All-America honor roll for the 2017 fall semester.

The Team Scholar All American award is presented to college and university swimming and diving teams, who have achieved a grade point average of 3.0 or higher. The award is presented twice annually, once in the fall semester/term and in the semester/term of the NCAA/NAIA/NJCAA Swimming and Diving Championships (Winter/Spring).

Under the direction of head coach Dan Gelderloos, the Calvin women's team posted a cumulative team grade point average of 3.49 for the fall semester while the Calvin men's team posted a cumulative team grade point average of 3.30.

"I am very proud of our teams for accomplishing this goal," said Gelderloos. "One of the goals before the year begins is to earn this award. We stress hard work and excellence not only in the pool but in the classroom. It is gratifying to see our student-athletes recognized for their efforts."
