UNH Swim & Dive Team Members Earn Accolades for High GPAs
University of New Hampshire's swimming and diving team for women has been named a Scholar All-America Team for spring 2021 by the College Swimming and Diving Coaches Association of America.
The scholar-athletes earned the accolade by recording a team grade point average of 3.48 in the Spring 2021 semester.
The team also won a second consecutive America East championship and conference-best ninth title overall in 2021.
“Winning our ninth championship title and earning our second-highest ever team GPA while facing so many challenges this year made for a memorable season,” UNH Head Coach Josh Willman said in a statement.
Willman said he is proud of the team and coaching staff.
Teams are required to post a team GPA of 3.0 or higher in the spring semester to earn distinction as a CSCAA Scholar All-America Team, according to a press release.
“Coach Willman consistently produces winners in the pool and classroom and this year is no exception,” CSCAA executive director Greg Earhart stated in a press release. “These are some of the best ambassadors of New Hampshire.”
The CSCAA will name its individual Scholar All-America Team next week.
