The Northern Arizona University swimming and diving team picked up another Scholar All-America Team award from the College Swimming and Coaches Association of America last week.
The Lumberjacks received the award for their exceptional performance in the classroom during the spring semester with a team GPA of 3.44, the highest of the three state universities. The award recognizes teams with a grade point average of at least 3.0.
Eighteen of the team members earned a GPA above 3.5 and nine posted a 4.0 GPA for the spring semester.
Five members of the team also were selected as All-Academic honorees by the Western Athletic Conference. Hayley Edmond, Logan Neal, Andrea Schmidt, Amanda Sumrow and Sarah Takach were added to the list bringing NAU’s total to 21 WAC All-Academic performers for the 2015-16 season.
