"This is our number one goal for every semester as a team," Head Coach Doug Alban said. "I am extremely proud of how hard these student-athletes work, both in the classroom and in the pool. This is also a huge morale boost for the team as we are ready to head into our conference championships."
A total of 688 teams from 430 individual institutions from across NCAA, NAIA and NJCAA were named CSCAA Scholar All-America Teams for earning a team GPA of 3.0 or higher in the 2017 Fall Semester.
