COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – The Harvard women's swimming and diving team earned a place on the College Swimming Coaches Association of America's (CSCAA) Scholar All-America list for the Spring 2019 semester.

"Coaches (Kevin) Tyrrell (Harvard men's swimming and diving) and (Stephanie) Wriede Morawski illustrate that athletic success does not come at the expense of high academic standards," CSCAA Executive Director Greg Earhart said.

The Crimson posted a 3.59 grade-point average, which was better than its Fall 2018 semester effort of 3.55. Among Ivy League members, Harvard finished in the upper half after claiming its second straight Ivy championship in March and qualifying five student-athletes for the NCAA meet, its most in more than a decade.

Founded in 1922, the College Swimming Coaches Association of America (CSCAA) – the first organization of college coaches in America – is a professional organization of college swimming and diving coaches dedicated to serving and providing leadership for the advancement of the sport of swimming & diving at the collegiate level.
