HANOVER, N.H. – Dartmouth’s swimming and diving programs were announced as two of the 658 Division I College Swimming Coaches Association of America (CSCAA) Scholar All-America teams for the fall.
The men’s team ended up with a 3.29 grade point average, while the women had a 3.53 GPA.
The Team Scholar All-America award is presented to college and university swimming and diving teams who have achieved a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or higher.
Each year, the award is presented twice, once in the fall and once in the semester of the NCAA Swimming and Diving Championships in the winter.
The Big Green women finished in eighth place at the Ivy League Championship, coming in just seven points behind Cornell in seventh. Throughout the three-day meet, rising junior AnnClaire MacArt broke a three-year-old record in the 500 free twice in one day and the 200 free relay took down the Dartmouth record from 2013 by just over a tenth of a second.
Dartmouth’s men concluded the 2015-16 season by taking eighth at the Ivy Championship. The team broke two school records throughout the weekend: the 200 free relay record from 2012 went down on the first night and James Verhagen took down his own 200 back record from 2013 on the final evening of competition.
