The College Swimming and Diving Coaches Association of America this week named the Brenau University Golden Tigers swim team a Scholar All-America Team for its sixth-best academic performance.
The award recognizes teams that achieved a combined GPA of 3.0 or higher during the 2016 fall semester. The Golden Tigers’ GPA for the semester was 3.42, above the all women’s teams’ average of 3.336.
Brenau had the sixth highest GPA out of the 29 National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics women’s swim teams. Only 10 NAIA teams received the honor.
“I’m so proud of my team and their commitment to succeeding in the classroom,” said Head Coach Nathan Rhoads. “They work hard in the pool and in the classroom, and it is an honor to work with them and to see their efforts recognized.”
