UCSB Women’s Swim Team Honored for Academics

The UCSB women's swim team was honored this week with the CSCAA Scholar All-American award. This award is only given to teams who have an average GPA of 3.0 or above in the fall 2017 quarter. The Gaucho women finished the quarter with an astounding 3.21 cumulative GPA. 

"The staff and athletics department are very proud of our women's performance in the classroom in the fall," coach Matt Macedo said. "To have a cumulative GPA over 3.2 with all of the challenges the team and university faced in recent months shows their commitment to their studies."

The team was faced with many challenges as the Thomas fire and other extraordinary circumstances occurred throughout the end of the quarter. But the women stayed strong by putting their studies first.

The award is given from the College Swimming and Diving Coaches Association of America. Not only do the recipients of the award show great academic achievements, they are also dedicated to their work in the pool. 

The Gaucho women have excelled this year in the pool and are looking forward to their hard work paying off at the MPSF Championships starting on Feb 14. The meet will be held at East L.A. Community College and will be the closing meet for the team's season.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
