The women’s swimming and diving team earned a Spring Scholar All-America Team Award from the College Swimming Coaches Association of America for a strong academic showing this spring.

The women’s squad earned a team GPA of 3.30 in spring semester. The award is given to teams that earn a 3.00 GPA or higher.

Three student-athletes achieved a 4.0 this semester, including Alisa Penkala, Erin Sivak and Melanie Waszak.

The team was also honored as a Fall Scholar All-America Team in March.

The Flames ended the 2013-14 season with a fifth-place finish at the Horizon League Championships.
