NORTHFIELD, Minn. – The Carleton College men’s and women’s swimming and diving programs were once again both designated as Scholar All-America squads by the College Swimming and Diving Coaches Association of America (CSCAA). The award is presented biannually, once for the fall term and again for the winter term/spring semester.

In order for an entire swimming and diving program to earn the Scholar All-America award, squads must have had a combined team grade point average of 3.0 or better on a 4.0 scale. The Carleton women’s team posted a cumulative 3.65 GPA for the winter 2018 term. That figure was second-best among MIAC women’s programs and was the 12th-highest among NCAA Division III squads. Meanwhile, the Carleton men’s team recorded a 3.31 cumulative GPA over the same span.

Carleton is one of four MIAC schools to have both its men’s and women’s swimming and diving programs honored by the CSCAA this time. The Knights are joined by Gustavus Adolphus College, Macalester College, and St. Olaf College.

Additionally, women’s swimmer Caroline Mather ’19 (Highlands Ranch, Colo./Mountain Vista) garnered additional recognition with the CSCAA’s individual Scholar All-America Honorable Mention. This award recognizes students that achieved a grade point average of 3.50 or higher and posted a “B” time standard.
