HANOVER, N.H. – The Dartmouth men’s and women’s swimming and diving programs were both named College Swimming Coaches Association of America (CSCAA) Scholar All-America Teams for the fall. The men’s team had a cumulative grade point average of 3.31 and the women had a 3.37.
A record 638 teams representing 394 institutions appeared on the list. The awards are in recognition of teams that have achieved a grade point average of 3.0 or higher during the fall of 2016. Ninety-one additional teams and thirty-six more institutions achieved the honor compared to a year ago.
The Big Green are coming off a winning weekend that saw both teams win the Dartmouth Invite. The men ended the weekend with a 177-159 victory over UMass, winning 10 events throughout the two-day, three-session meet. Dartmouth was highlighted by Henry Senkfor, who won the 200 IM, was second in the 400 IM and tied for second in the 200 back.
The women defeated UMass by a score of 202-133, leading the Minutewomen from the first relay. AnnClaire MacArt had a great weekend, winning the 500 free on the first day before breaking a 19-year old pool record in the 1,650 free the following day. Sam Norton tied the invite meet record in the 200 breast, swimming the same time as UMass’ Meriza Werenski did in 2014.
Just two more home meets remain on the schedule before the Ivy League Championship. The women will head to Providence (Feb. 15-18), while the men will compete in Cambridge a week later (Feb. 22-25).
