The Union College women's swimming team was honored for their work in the classroom this past semester on Thursday, as the Bulldogs were named to the 2014 Spring College Swimming Coaches Association of America (CSCAA) NAIA/NJCAA Scholar All-America Team, which is supported by Nike Swim.
The Team Scholar All-American Award is presented to college and university swimming and diving teams, who have achieved a team grade point average of 3.0 or higher. The award is presented twice annually, once in the fall semester and again in the spring to recognize teams achieving a 3.0 in the semester coinciding with the NCAA/NAIA/NJCAA/CCCAA Swimming and Diving Championships.
In the Spring 2014 semester, the Bulldogs registered a 3.22 GPA to earn the Scholar All-America Team Award for the seventh time in program history, and for the fifth consecutive semester dating back to the Fall of 2011. Union is one of only five women's programs in the entire NAIA and NJCAA to earn the award for the Spring semester, as well.
