July 6, 2009


Kansas senior Emily Lanteigne and former standouts Danielle Herrmann and Anne Liggett have been named Scholar All-America Honorable Mention by the Collegiate Swim Coaches Association of America (CSCAA). In order to be considered for Honorable Mention, a swimmer had to post an NCAA consideration time and a GPA of 3.5 or higher.

Lanteigne, from Naperville, Ill., is studying Elementary Education. She is considered one of KU’s most versatile freestyle swimmers. Last season, she was a member of the school-record breaking 200, 400 and 800 yard freestyle relay teams at the 2009 Big 12 Championships and placed 13th in the 200 yard individual freestyle at the same meet.

Herrmann, who graduated with a degree in Exercise Science, is from Itasca, Ill. She placed 13th in the 200 yard breaststroke at the Big 12 Championships. She also boasted a squad-wide season-best time in the 100 breaststroke at the Kenyon Invitational with a 1:02.67, just .66 seconds shy of the school record.

Liggett, from Portland, Ore., graduated with a degree in Linguistics. At the Big 12 Championships, she placed 15th in the 200 yard freestyle. She also placed 24th in the 50 yard freestyle event.

All three swimmers were also Academic All-Big 12 First Team members.

With a combined GPA of 3.28, The University of Kansas Swimming and Diving Team was selected as a CSCAA Spring 2009 Scholar All-American team.

The Jayhawks will open the 2009-10 season on Oct. 9 with an Intrasquad meet at Robinson Natatorium.
