July 11, 2014

BALTIMORE - The Loyola University Maryland men’s and women’s swimming and diving teams earned Team Scholar All-American Awards supported by Nike Swim, as announced by the College Swimming Coaches Association of America (CSCAA).

The Greyhounds’ women’s squad compiled a cumulative 3.27 grade point average during the fall and spring semesters in 2013-14, while the men’s team recorded a 3.14 GPA.

Four Greyhounds – senior Avery Allen, senior Stephanie Baliko, freshman Dale Maholage and senior Noelle Staib – earned perfect 4.00 grade point averages through either the fall or spring semesters this year, while 24 women and 12 men were named to the Patriot League Academic Honor Roll. Senior Erin Shea also earned a spot on the 10-member Patriot League All-Academic Swimming & Diving Team in March.

The Team Scholar All-American Award is presented to college and university swimming and diving teams that have achieved a team grade point average of 3.00 or higher. The award is presented twice annually, once in the fall semester and again in the spring to recognize teams achieving a 3.00 in the semester coinciding with the NCAA Swimming and Diving Championships.
