Smart and skilled: both Longhorn swim squads earn Scholar All-American status

Posted June 21st, 2017


Both the Texas men and women’s swimming and diving teams earned All-American scholar status for the spring semester.

The honor is bestowed by the College Swimming and Diving Coaches Association of America.

The Texas men’s team won its third straight NCAA title in March. The women finished fifth nationally. It was the first time the Longhorn women had earned a top five spot in eight years.


To earn scholar status, a team needed a collective 3.0 grade point average. The Texas women maintained a 3.47. The men finished with a 3.07.

Twenty one Longhorns earned either scholar All-American or honorable mention status. You need to have a GPA of 3.5 and have qualified for the NCAA meet to earn All-American. Honorable mention means you earned the GPA and either made a B time standard for the NCAAs or made the NCAA zone diving meet.
