Sagehens Rank Third Nationally In Team GPA

Claremont, Calif. - The Pomona-Pitzer Men's Swimming and Diving team ranked third in the country in team GPA (3.56), it was announced today by the College Swimming Coaches Association of America (CSCAA).

In fact, both Sagehen teams were honored by the CSCAA, as the Women's Swimming and Diving team placed ninth nationally with a 3.61 team GPA. It is the second year in a row that both programs have been in the top 10 in the country in team GPA.

The Pomona-Pitzer Men's Swimming and Diving team was one of only four nationally that had a 3.5 team GPA or higher. Only Principia (3.76) and Caltech (3.65) recorded better team grade point averages this year.

Pomona-Pitzer also had great success in the pool this season, tallying a 5-2 conference record and finishing third in the SCIAC championships. Senior Max Scholten led the way with his fourth straight SCIAC title in the 100-yard backstroke, ended his career with seven school records (three individual, four relay), and earned Capital One Academic All-District honors from the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA).
