EVANSTON, Illinois - The Boise State swimming and diving team has earned a spot on the College Swimming Coaches Association of America's Scholar Athlete All-America list with a 3.24 team GPA for the fall 2009 semester. The Broncos made the list last year, but made a significant jump up the ranks with a much improved GPA.
The annual honor is given to teams that achieve a 3.00 GPA or better in the fall semester. This year, 341 teams made the list, which is the largest number since the CSCAA raised he criteria for selection in 2008. The 341 teams represent 241 colleges and universities across both genders and all three NCAA divisions.
The Broncos were one of six WAC teams to be named on the list. The Gardner-Webb women's team led all Division I programs with a 3.52 team GPA.
The Broncos hope to extend their success to the pool when they compete at the WAC Championships on Feb. 24-27 in San Antonio, Texas.
