Great Academic News for Swim & Dive and Xavier!

January 25, 2024

By Coach Smithers:

I have exciting academic news for the Swim & Dive team and Xavier! Every year, NISCA (National Interscholastic Swimming Coaches Association) honors athletes and teams with two academic awards:  Academic All-America and Team Scholar.

Academic All-American
This year, we have three Academic All-Americans.

Brook Person (swimming)

Audrey Schaub (swimming)

Sophia Sweatlock (swimming)

To be an Academic All-American, student athletes must have a 3.75 GPA as of her 7th semester transcript along with a recommendation of the coach and be in high standing on the team. As noted by NISCA, only 10%-15% of all swimmers, divers and water polo players in high school achieve this award yearly. So, the Swim & Dive Team along with the coaches, are so proud of these ladies!


Team Scholar
There are three levels for Team Scholar:
Bronze Level 3.200 – 3.499
Silver Level 3.500 – 3.749
Gold Level 3.750 – 4.000

Team GPA is determined by the cumulative grade by all varsity team members for that season.

This is the 3rd year we have applied for this honor.
2021-2022: the Lady Gators were awarded SILVER LEVEL with a 3.713 GPA.
Last year 2022-2023:  the Lady Gators were GOLD LEVEL with a GPA of 3.751
This year 2023-2024:  the Lady Gators are GOLD LEVEL again with a GPA of 3.783

Thank you all for your support of these ladies and the Swim & Dive team!
