Seven members of the 2009-10 Harvard women’s swimming and diving team have been named to the College Swimming Coaches Association of America (CSCAA) All-Academic Team. Two team members earned first-team All-Academic honors, five others earned honorable mention and Harvard also earned team All-Academic honors based on the squad’s overall grade-point average.

Alexandra Clarke ’10, a 2010 All-America selection in the 1,650-yard freestyle event, earned first-team honors and was joined by Kate Mills, who qualified for the 2010 NCAA Championships in the 200 free and the 200 butterfly. Catherine Zagroba, Katherine Pickard, Katherine Hinkle, Ali Slack and Mackenzie Luick all earned All-Academic honorable mention accolades, meeting the required GPA and hitting NCAA ‘B’ cuts during the 2009-10 season.

The 2009-10 women’s swimming and diving team also earned team All-Academic accolades, combining for a team GPA of 3.323, well above the qualifying mark of 3.000.

The CSCAA chooses its All-Academic team members on the basis of their performances in the pool and classroom. To be selected to the All-Academic team, swimmers must qualify for the NCAA Championships meet and achieve a GPA of 3.50 or higher. Honorable mention selections, meanwhile, must achieve an NCAA provisional qualifying time and a 3.50 or higher GPA.
