BRADFORD, Pa. -- For the third-straight semester, the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford women's swim program has earned a spot on the College Swimming and Diving Coaches Association of America (CSCAA) Scholar All-America list, officials announced Tuesday.
"This is a fitting way to end what has been an amazing year for the swim team," Head Coach Doug Alban said. "These ladies' hard work continues to pay off in the biggest way. The Scholar All-America team award is the highest goal they look to achieve, and for the third-consecutive semester, they have done so. I am truly proud of what they have accomplished."
A total of 710 teams that represent 476 institutions from across all NCAA, NAIA and NJCAA Divisions were honored by the CSCAA for achieving a team GPA of 3.0 or higher in the 2018 Spring Semester.
Collectively, the Panthers earned a qualifying GPA of 3.28 this past semester.
The Pitt-Bradford women's swim program has been achieving a level of academic success like never before, as, in addition to spending three-straight semesters on the CSCAA Scholar All-America list, the Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference named Pitt-Bradford its Women's Swim Team Peak Performer for having the highest cumulative grade point average in its respective sport.
Founded in 1922, the CSCAA is the oldest coaches association in the United States of America. It is made up of over 2,000 member coaches and assistant coaches.
