GREEN BAY, Wis. (GreenBayPhoenix.com) - The College Swimming Coaches Association of America (CSCAA) recently announced its list of Scholar All-America teams for the Spring 2012 semester, recognizing squads that achieved a 3.0 grade-point average or higher. The UW-Green Bay women made the list of 144 Division I teams, as the Phoenix posted an impressive 3.34 GPA.

"I'm very proud of our women's team for having another successful semester in the classroom," Phoenix head coach Jim Merner said. "Our program has had a rich tradition of excelling both in the pool and academically, and to see them get recognized for that success if very exciting."

The women's swimming and diving team was one of 13 Green Bay sports to achieve a 3.2 GPA or higher in the spring, helping the department to one of its most successful semesters in school history. Phoenix student-athletes combined for a record-high 3.27 GPA, marking the 25th-straight semester above a 3.0.

Phoenix swimming and diving also had 10 women with a 3.2 GPA or better, landing them on the Horizon League's Spring 2012 Academic Honor Roll.
