WATERVILLE, Maine --- The Colby College women’s swimming and diving team had the best cumulative grade point average of any New England Small College Athletic Conference swim team and the men also were named a College Swimming Coaches Association of America (CSCAA) Scholar All-America Team.

The men were third among NESCAC schools on the CSCAA Scholar All-America Team.

Teams needed at least a 3.0 grade point average to earn the honor. Tom Burton is the head coach of both Colby teams.
