Ekman, Swimming & Diving Programs Earn CSCAA Scholar All-America Honors

BABSON PARK, Mass.—The Babson College men's and women's swimming & diving squads were honored for their work in the classroom when they received College Swimming & Diving Coaches Association of America (CSCAA) Scholar All-America team recognition earlier this week.

In addition to the academic success of both teams, senior Paris Ekman (Fargo, N.D.) received CSCAA Scholar All-America honorable mention honors. One of 997 individuals recognized by the organization, Ekman qualified for the NCAA Regional Diving Championships for the fourth consecutive season and graduated with a 3.66 cumulative grade-point average last month.

Two of 720 programs to receive Scholar All-America team honors, the Babson men posted a 3.37 GPA and the women finished the spring term with a 3.34 GPA. The Beavers were among 443 institutions to record a grade-point average of better than 3.0 during the Spring 2017 semester.

The academic recognition for both of Babson's squads is the first since the 2014-15 season.
