While keeping their Southeastern Conference championship streak alive in the pool, the team combined for an overall grade point average of 3.33 this spring, despite the challenges and difficulties throughout the semester. Additionally, the team placed 17 swimmers and divers on the 2019-20 Winter SEC Academic Honor Roll.<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__floridagators.com_news_2020_4_23_mens-2Dswimming-2Ddiving-2D17-2Dgators-2Dearn-2Dsec-2Dacademic-2Dhonor-2Droll-2Dstatus.aspx&d=DwIF-g&c=sJ6xIWYx-zLMB3EPkvcnVg&r=o5LKAX7slotfFMyE71jI7L22NYBIi1-KbRGNSXudTPo&m=fkjPDpUL_rrH4l7NSRKlBCXpC2wa1-6DE7r32U0k2qA&s=kM06QyntxFlDTKJrZNCzPNPgwRVsw-L6GSQomV2yRhU&e= >

“No team was unaffected by this Spring’s pandemic,” said CSCAA Executive Director Greg Earhart, “but Athletic Director (Scott) Stricklin and President (W. Kent) Fuchs can and should be proud of their team and the work of Jeff (Poppell) and Anthony (Nesty).”

The Gators were one of 461 schools to receive the honor for this spring, totaling a representation of 17,982 student-athletes.

Individual CSCAA Scholar All-American accolades will be announced next week.
