VESTAL, N.Y. – The Binghamton University women’s swimming and diving program was recently recognized by the College Swimming Coaches Association of America (CSCAA) for achieving Scholar All-American status, for the Fall 2011 semester. The women have earned the honor for the eighth straight year, beginning in 2004-05.
The CSCAA presents the Team Scholar All-American award to college and university swimming and diving teams who have achieved a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or higher. Binghamton was one of four America East programs to be honored, along with Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont.
“We’re proud to display that we are a team that is dedicated to being the ideal student-athlete,” head coach Sean Clark said. “I know that our women have made sacrifices of their time and energy as they seek to prioritize their responsibilities. They deserve to be recognized for their high achievements.”
In the pool, the women’s swimming and diving team just wrapped up the four-day America East Championship last weekend in Boston. The Bearcats had two all-conference swimmers represent the women’s program as freshman and local Vestal graduate Corinne Zotter took gold in the 100 breast while junior Olivia Baczek won silver in the 100 free and 200 back.
The CSCAA is an association of swim coaches that annually provides both academic and athletic rankings for collegiate swimmers.
