The College Swimming Coaches Association of America (CSCAA) recognized the Rice Owls as a Scholar All-American Team after posting a 3.50 grade point average during the 2016 spring semester.
The 3.50 GPA is a cumulative total from 23 student-athletes on the team's 2015-2016 roster. Rice's 2014 GPA was among the top 40 in the nation for women's Division I swim teams.
Last spring the Owls finished second in the Conference USA Championship meet. Rice swimming is under the direction of head coach Seth Huston, who recently completed his 14th year at the helm of the program.
