Cal Poly’s Davies, Women’s Swimming and Diving Honored by CSCAA

SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. — The Cal Poly swimming and diving program has earned both individual and team Scholar All-America honors from the College Swimming Coaches Association of America.

Individually, Cal Poly sophomore Caleb Davies — who set the school record in the sprint freestyle on Feb. 19 (at an NCAA Championships-qualifying 20.13 seconds) — received Scholar All-America honorable mention praise.

Davies is majoring in mechanical engineering and also earned Mountain Pacific Sports Federation All-Academic honors.
 
To be selected to the CSCAA Scholar All-America Team, swimmers and divers must have achieved a GPA of 3.5 or higher and have qualified for their respective national championship meet.
 
As a team, the 32-member Cal Poly's women's swimming and diving squad generated a combined GPA of 3.10. (The cutoff was 3.0.)
 
The women's team also highlighted the season by earning dual meet wins over Pepperdine (by a score of 161-120 on Nov. 8) and UC Santa Barbara (152-135 during the Blue-Green Rivalry on Jan. 31).
 
In all, the Mustangs have earned conference all-academic honors 101 times during head coach Tom Milich's tenure.

Among the women's and men's squads, since 2009-10, the teams have achieved rare perfect annual NCAA Academic Progress Rates (1,000 out of a possible 1,000) eight out of 10 times.
