July 23, 2013
NORFOLK, Va. -- The College Swim Coaches Association of America has recognized recent graduates Breann Fuller (first team) and Kelly Mathews (honorable mention) as Scholar All-Americans.
Additionally, the CSU swimming & diving program was named among the CSCAA's 2013 Scholar All-America Teams, earning a team GPA of 3.15 this past semester.
"I'm very proud of the commitment of our team," Head Coach Christopher Woodard said. "We are slowly rising, and I hope to raise our GPA to 3.3 by next spring. As always, most of the credit goes to Erin (Hammersley, academic coordinator)."
Fuller, who completed her master's degree in May with a 3.85 GPA, also was a four-time Mountain West Scholar-Athlete. She holds four school records and in February earned the league's Senior Recognition Award. Last week, the Brighton, Colo., native was named CSU's Mencimer Memorial Award recipient, given annually to the school's top female scholar-athlete.
The Scholar All-American award is presented to college and university swimmers and divers who have achieved a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or higher, for the semester or cumulative average, and have qualified for their respective national championship. Fuller earned her second NCAA Championships berth in 2013, placing 24th in the 100 and 200 Backstroke events.
The Honorable Mention Scholar All-American award is presented to college and university swimmers and divers who have achieved a grade point average of 3.5 or higher, for the semester or cumulative average, and have achieved a "B" time standard, but have not qualified to compete in their respective national championship.
Mathews, of Denver, Colo., was part of two school-record relay teams, and ranks third in CSU history in the 100 Breaststroke, and fourth in the 200.
The Rams were one of 152 Division I women's teams recognized nationally. In all, the CSCAA honored 522 teams representing 347 institutions, ranging from Division I to III, both men and women, for having a GPA of 3.0 or above.
The Scholar All-American Team honor is awarded twice a year. This is the seventh time since 2009 that the Rams have been recognized, and the highest GPA since Woodard took over the program in June 2011.
