Eight Bulldogs Earn Scholar All-America Honors
NEW HAVEN, Conn.- Eight members of the Yale women's swimming and diving team were named Individual Scholar All-Americans or received honorable mentions from the College Swimming Coaches Association of America (CSCAA) on July 11.
To receive Scholar All-America honors, a Division I swimmer or diver must achieve a cumulative, or term grade point average of 3.5 or higher for the academic term coinciding with the NCAA Swimming and Diving Championships, and qualify for and compete at the Championships.
Rising junior swimmer Eva Fabian and rising sophomore diver Lilybet MacRae earned First-Team recognition for 2014. Both represented Yale at the NCAA Swimming and Diving Championships in Minneapolis, Minn.
Six more swimmers received the Honorable Mention Scholar All-America award. These swimmers and divers met the same GPA requirements as the Scholar All-Americans, and achieved an NCAA swimming "B" time standard or competed at diving zones, but did not qualify for or compete at the NCAA Championships.
The swimmers who earned an honorable mention were recent graduate Courtney Randolph '14, rising junior Casey Lincoln, and rising sophomores Michelle Chintanaphol, Isla Hutchinson-Maddox, Olivia Jameson and Kina Zhou. Most of the Bulldogs on the Scholar All-America lists are in Yale's classes of 2016 and 2017, a testament to the athletic and academic prowess of the team's recent recruits.
The CSCAA also recognized the Bulldogs as a Scholar All-America Team for the 2014 spring semester.
