PITTSBURGH—Pitt’s women’s swimming and diving team was named to the Fall 2011 CSCAA Team Scholar All-American list, as announced by CSCAA officials. This is the 13th consecutive All-Academic distinction for the Panthers.
The CSCAA All-America list is made up of collegiate swimming and diving teams, who have achieved a cumulative grade point average of a 3.0 or higher. The award is presented to teams earning this standard in both the fall semester and during the NCAA swimming and diving season (winter/spring).
Pitt was one of nine Big East women’s teams to garner this distinction. Leading Division I schools was Clemson (3.55) and Wagner (3.52).
The Panthers posted a collective 3.11 GPA. Pitt recently honored twenty-seven members of the squad, who registered a 3.0 or higher during the 2011 academic calendar, at a Scholar-Athlete Breakfast. Earning a perfect 4.0 GPA were freshman Lauren Mills and graduates Cookie McIntyre and Kristen McMullan.
