Shore swimmers’ team GPA is 3rd highest in DIII

CHESTERTOWN — Washington College’s women’s swim team had a composite grade point average of 3.84 (on a 4.0 scale) for the fall semester, third highest among all NCAA Division III schools for the second year in a row.

The Shore ladies met the Scholar All-America Team criteria established by the College Swimming and Diving Coaches Association of America.

“Over the past three semesters, the Washington College women’s swim team has turned heads and has shown the nation how high it performs in the classroom. Its standard, as a team culture, is immensely high and is consistently reinforcing the team to strive for more when times get tough,” coach Philip Quick said in a news release.

He added: “These women are constantly some of the most involved students on campus, hired as tutors, nominated as peer mentors and leaders throughout Washington College. To have the third highest GPA in the nation is an impressive accomplishment, but to do it twice is incredible.”

Caltech (3.98) and Manchester (3.87) were first and second, respectively, in Division III.

Caltech led all divisions with team GPAs of 3.91 for men and 3.98 for women.

For the third consecutive fall, Harvard’s men secured the top spot in Division I with a team GPA of 3.79.

Marshall (3.80) topped the Division I women’s GPA rankings for a second straight fall.
