MUNCIE, Ind. – On the heels of one of the most successful seasons on record, the Ball State women’s swimming and diving team was named a 2013 CSCAA Scholar All-America Team by the College Swimming Coaches Association of America. In addition, three Cardinals were named to the Honorable Mention Scholar All-American list.
The Team Scholar All-America award is presented to college and university swimming and diving teams who have achieved a grade point average of 3.0 or higher in the same semester/quarter of the NCAA/NAIA/NJCAA Swimming and Diving Championships. The Cardinals finished with a 3.45 GPA which ranks fourth among teams in the Mid-American Conference.
Seniors Mallory Miles, Haley Richter and Emily Wisolek earned the distinction of being named to the Honorable Mention Scholar All-American list. In order to be named to the honorable mention list swimmers and divers had to achieve a grade point average of 3.5 or higher and have achieved a “B” time standard, but did not qualify to compete in their respective national championship. The athlete’s GPA in the semester/quarter coinciding with the NCAA/NAIA/NJCAA Swimming and Diving Championships determines the honorable mention award.
