Boise State Swimming & Diving Earns CSCAA Academic Honors

BOISE, Idaho - The Boise State swimming and diving team was selected as a CSCAA All-Academic Team for the spring 2010 semester.  This award is given by the College Swimming Coaches Association of America and recognizes the top academic Division I teams in the country.  The Broncos were the highest ranked team in the WAC with a 3.30 GPA, which also marked the highest team GPA in the history of the program.

In addition, sophomore Amber Boucher was also recognized as an all-academic swimmer which required her to be above a 3.5 and achieve an NCAA B cut in an event.

After a short four years of existence, Boise State rose to the top of the WAC last season as the Broncos captured their first-ever WAC crown. Boucher was also named the WAC Swimmer of the Year, earning five gold medals at the WAC Championships.

Over the four-day meet, the Broncos broke 15 school records and earned eight WAC titles. In addition, the Broncos' 547 points also shattered the school record for WAC scoring.

The Broncos dominated the final standings with 587 points. San Jose State posed the closest threat with 494 points. The Spartans were followed by New Mexico State, Northern Arizona, Nevada, Hawaii, San Diego, Idaho and Fresno State.
