BARBOURVILLE, Ky. - The Union College women's swimming team has been named a 2013 Fall CSCAA Scholar All-America Team, the organization announced recently. The award is supported by Nike Swim.
The Bulldogs were one of six NAIA women's swimming programs to earn the award for the Fall semester, as the team recorded a combined grade point average (GPA) of 3.14.
The Team Scholar All American award is presented to college and university swimming and diving teams, who have achieved a team 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).
This marks the sixth time in program history that the Union's women's team has earned the CSCAA Scholar All-America team honor. At the 2014 NAIA National Championships earlier this month, the Bulldogs finished eighth overall.
