CMS Swimming and Diving Teams Both Earn CSCAA Scholar All-America Team Accolades
CLAREMONT, Calif. - The Claremont-Mudd-Scripps women's and men's swimming and diving teams both earned Scholar All-America Team honors from the College Swimming and Diving Coaches Association of America, the organization announced today.
Claremont-Mudd-Scripps was one of 461 schools to receive the award for the Spring semester. Teams were selected on the basis of their Spring grade point averages and represent 17,982 student-athletes.
The Athenas and Stags also had a successful season in the pool, with both capturing their respective SCIAC Championships. The Athenas finished the year ranked No. 10 in the nation in the final CSCAA Division III poll, while the Stags were close behind in 11th. The two teams were sending a combined 18 athletes to the NCAA Division III Championships in March, but NCAA sports were suspended one week before the championship due to the coronavirus pandemic.
CSCAA Executive Director Greg Earhart mentioned the efforts of Head Coach Charlie Griffiths and his staff, noting that "No team was unaffected by this Spring's pandemic but Athletic Director Erica Perkins Jasper and President Hiram Chodosh can and should be proud of their team and the work of Charlie."
Individual Scholar All-America selections from the CSCAA will be announced next week.
