APPLETON, Wis. -- The Lawrence University swimming and diving teams were both named Scholar All-America teams by the College Swimming and Diving Coaches Association of America.

The Lawrence teams were chosen for their academic achievement during the fall 2018 semester. To be eligible, a team had to post a grade point average of at least 3.0 during the fall semester.

The Lawrence women compiled a 3.62 GPA for the fall term, and the Lawrence men were at 3.18.

This marks the fifth consecutive time the Lawrence women have been honored. The Lawrence men were honored for the third time in the last four seasons.

Lawrence returns to action on Saturday when the Vikings compete at the Wisconsin Private College Championships at Carthage College.
