Swimming & Diving Team Honored By CSCAA

July 8, 2005

Lawrence, Kan. — Jenny Short, Jackie Krueger, Lindsey Urbatchka and Terri Schramka of the University of Kansas swimming and diving team were all honored by the College Swim Coaches Association of America (CSCAA) as Academic All-Americans for the 2004-05 season as announced this week.

The Jayhawks’ 3.21 team GPA also landed Kansas on the CSCAA Academic All-America teams list, where KU ranked 40th overall for highest team GPA.

“Traditionally, our end of year academic honors signify the end of the season,” head coach Clark Campbell said. “It is great to finish the 2004-05 campaign on such a great note.”

To earn Academic All-American status, student-athletes must earn a minimum of a 3.5 GPA and qualify for the NCAA, NAIA or NJCAA championships. Student-athletes with a 3.5 GPA who earn NCAA ‘B’ times are eligible for Academic All-American Honorable Mention status. Short was named to the first team, while Krueger, Urbatchka and Schramka were all honorable mention selections.

Short, a biology major from Olathe, Kan., competed at the NCAA championships in both the 100 and 200 backstroke.

Krueger, a psychology major from Sussex, Wis., and Schramka, an accounting major from Madison, Wis., each posted an NCAA `B’ time at the Big 12 Championships in the 200 freestyle. Urbatchka, a pharmacy major from Sheridan, Wyo., posted an NCAA `B’ time in the 100 butterfly at the Big 12 Championships.
