Shippensburg University: Swimming teams recognized for scholastic excellence

Shippensburg University swimming teams were recognized for their scholastic excellence in 2020; in spite of a pandemic that cut short most sports activity and put students in virtual classes.

The women’s and men’s swimming teams have been named Fall 2020 College Swimming Coaches Association of America (CSCAA) Scholar All-America Teams; once again sustaining their long-standing tradition of academic excellence.
