    EVANSTON, Ill. -- Both Northwestern's men's and women's swimming and diving programs have been honored with the College Swimming Coaches Association of America (CSCAA) Team Scholar All-America Team award following the fall quarter, the organization announced Wednesday, Feb. 22.

    The Team Scholar All-America award is presented to college and university swimming and diving teams that have achieved a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or higher. The award is presented to teams achieving this standard in the fall semester and in the semester of the NCAA Swimming and Diving Championships (Winter/Spring).

    The Northwestern women earned a cumulative GPA of 3.38 to earn the award. That number tied for the fourth-best among all Wildcat programs in the fall quarter of 2011. The NU men compiled a 3.03 team GPA during the same term.
