APPLETON, Wis. — The Lawrence University men’s and women’s swimming teams have been named Scholar All-America Teams by the College Swimming and Diving Coaches Association of America.

To be eligible for the award, a team must have a minimum 3.0 grade point average during the 2016 fall term.

The Lawrence women, who earned the award for the third consecutive year, posted a sparkling 3.47 grade point average. The Lawrence men also earned the honor with a 3.01 grade point average.

Lawrence was one of four schools from the Midwest Conference to have both of its teams earn the award.

The Vikings return to the pool on Saturday to compete in the Wisconsin Private College Championships at Carthage College.
