The College Swimming and Diving Coaches Association of America (CSCAA) has selected the Lenoir-Rhyne University men's and women's swimming teams for Scholar All-American honors. Lenoir-Rhyne was one of 461 schools to receive the award for the Spring semester. Teams were selected on the basis of their Spring grade point averages and represent 17,982 student-athletes.
CSCAA Executive Director Greg Earhart mentioned the efforts of Coach Schiffel noting that "No team was unaffected by this Spring's pandemic but Athletic Director Pate and President Whitt can and should be proud of their team and the work of Paul."
Additional institutional adjustments to grading systems resulted in GPAs nearly one-quarter letter grade higher than previously. As a result, the CSCAA will not be publishing team GPAs. This Semester's list also does not include teams at institutions that switched entirely to pass/fail grading.
Nine teams earned the honor for the first time. These include men's teams at Anderson University, Eastern Connecticut, Lynchburg, Montevallo and Saint Joseph's (CT). Women's team earning the award for the first time include Bethel University (IN) and George Fox.
