Florida International University’s swimming and diving team has been recognized by the College Swimming and Diving Coaches Association (CSCAA) for student-athletes’ stellar performance in the classrooms. Combined, the two teams sport a 3.58 GPA and have been named to the Scholar All-America team announced by the league last week.
“The ladies killed it in the classroom this year. They continue to raise the bar and exceed it, I could not be more proud of how we are getting the job done in the classroom,” said head coach Randy Horner. 
Coming off another successful season and their fifth-consecutive C-USA title the Panthers have proven their domination in the pool and in the classroom. Of the 32 members on the team, four student-athletes completed the spring semester with a 4.0 GPA, while 23 achieved above a 3.5 GPA. Their cumulative Spring semester GPA of 3.62 sets a new program record.
CSCAA Executive Director Greg Earhart noted, “Coach Horner shows that winning titles and achieving academic success go hand-in-hand.”
