Augusta Lewis Captures Second-Team Academic All-America Honors
CLAREMONT, Calif. - Senior Augusta Lewis of the Claremont-Mudd-Scripps women's swimming and diving team earned second-team Academic All-America honors from College Sports Communicators (CSC), the organization announced today.
The award comes on the heels of a great week for Lewis at the NCAA Division III Swimming and Diving Championships, when she won the national title in the 400-yard individual medley. She also earned fifth in the 200-yard IM and seventh in the 200-yard butterfly, giving her first-team All-America honors in all three of her individual events.
It was the second year in a row that Lewis has gone 3-for-3 winning first-team All-America honors, while adding her first national title. A year ago, she was second in the 400 IM, third in the 200 IM and fourth in the 200-yard breaststroke.
A public policy and international relations dual major at Claremont McKenna, Lewis has carried around a 3.8 GPA and has earned SCIAC All-Academic team distinction throughout her career.
The Academic All-America programs honors student-athletes who excel both academically and athletically during their collegiate careers.
In addition to Lewis' Academic All-America honor, Ella Blake, Izzy Doud, and Annie Johnson earned Academic All-District honors from the CSC after all three qualified for the NCAA Division III Championships as well.
