A season that reflected improvement in the water also ended with honors in the classroom for the Pacific Lutheran women's swimming team.
The PLU women received recognition as an Academic All America Team as named by the College Swim Coaches Association of America. The Lutes posted a 3.16 team grade point average for the spring semester.
"This is a nice feather in our cap, demonstrating that we are raising the bar for the program in the classroom as well as in the pool," PLU head coach Matt Sellman said.
The PLU women finished fifth in the 2012 Northwest Conference championship meet, improving by one spot over the previous season, while the Lutes men also moved up one spot to third place.
