Kansas Swimmers and Divers Make All-America List

July 19, 2013

LAWRENCE, Kan. – The College Swimming Coaches Association of America (CSCAA) has released its Scholar All-America Team for the spring 2013 semester and the University of Kansas can be found among the 130-plus schools on the list. The Jayhawks’ team grade point average of 3.19 this past semester put them less than one-point behind leaders East Carloina and North Texas (3.62), and tied them with Central Connecticut State, Florida State, North Carolina State, Idaho and Virginia.

Head Coach Clark Campbell’s team finished the spring term with the third-highest GPA in the Big 12 Conference, only trailing TCU and Iowa State who earned a 3.29 and a 3.27 respectively.  Kansas’ success in the classroom came during a semester in which it traveled to California, Hawai’i and Texas for the Big 12 Championships, where they earned 540.5 points for a fourth-place finish.

KU swimmers and divers also worked for a 3.31 GPA in the fall semester. These past two GPA’s have kept the team’s streak alive of obtaining over a 3.0. Below is a look at the swimming and diving team’s total GPA’s through the last four semesters.

Brooke Brull, Bryce Hinde and Chelsie Miller were three Kansas student-athletes who earned the individual Scholar Honorable Mention All-American award. The Honorable Mention Scholar All-American award is presented to college and university swimmers and divers who have achieved a grade point average of 3.5 or higher for the semester or cumulative average, and have achieved a “B” time standard, but have not qualified to compete in their respective national championship.
