DALLAS (SMU) – Ten SMU swimmers and divers were honored by the College Swimming Coaches Association of America (CSCAA) as Scholar All-America selections, the organization announced on Monday, this coming the week after both the men’s and women’s programs were named CSCAA Scholar All-America Teams.

Both the Scholar All-America and honorable mention awards are based on a cumulative or term grade point average of 3.5 and above in the semester of the NCAA Championship, as well as participation in that championship. Divers qualify by competing at their respective championship qualifying meets, zones or NCAA preliminary rounds.

Nina Rangelova highlighted the selections on the women’s side as a first-team honoree, while Isabella Arcila, Ursa Bezan and Nathalie Lindborg earned honorable mention accolades.

On the men’s side, six were recognized as honorable mention selections for their work in the classroom including Nicolai Hansen, Bryce Klein, Ryan Koops, Tyler Rauth, Matt Roney and Tucker Wells.

The women’s team compiled a 3.40 GPA for the spring semester, while the men posted a 3.25. For a full list of CSCAA Scholar All-Americans click here.
