University of Toledo diver, Joelle Gallais, earned individual Scholar All-America Honorable Mention accolades from the College Swimming and Diving Coaches Association of America (CSCAA).
Gallais assisted the swimming and diving team in earning the CSCAA Scholar All-America Team awards announced last month, after the team put together the seventh-highest GPA in the country at 3.69. The bioengineering major put together an impressive resume in her first season at Toledo, garnering six first-place finishes in the diving well and competing at the NCAA Diving Zones.
The award recognizes student-athletes that have achieved a grade-point average of 3.50 or higher and competed in their respective NCAA/NAIA/NJCAA Swimming and Diving Championships. In addition to the 1,221 first-team selection, 890 students were named as Honorable Mention selections. These students have similarly achieved a GPA of 3.50 and achieved a "B" standard time or competed at the NCAA Regional or Diving Zones.
