Bears Honored for Work in Classroom by CSCAA

NEW LONDON, Conn. – The Coast Guard Academy men's and women's teams both achieved Scholar All-American status from the College Swimming Coaches Association of America (CSCAA)  for the 2013 Fall semester.

The CSCAA presents the Team Scholar All-American award to college and university swimming and diving teams who have achieved a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher.

"To have a team GPA of over 3.0 at such an outstanding academic institution as the Coast Guard Academy is an outstanding achievement for both our men's and women's programs."
