San Antonio - Seven Trinity student-athletes have earned Scholar All-America accolades from the College Swimming & Diving Coaches Association of America (CSCAA).
The requirements to become a CSCAA Scholar All-American are stringent, and all of Trinity's honorees were able to secure First Team Scholar All-Americans. To be selected, a student-athlete must have achieved a grade point average of 3.50 or higher and have participated in an NCAA Championship.
Women's swimmer Lindsay Hagmann garnered the kudos for the third straight year. Hagmann turned in an All-America performance in the 50-yard freestyle at the 2018 NCAA Division III Swimming & Diving Championships and was an Honorable Mention All-American in the 100-yard freestyle. She also was an Honorable Mention All-American in the 200-yard freestyle relay. Hagmann was earlier elected to the Google Cloud NCAA Division III Academic All-District 8 Women's At-Large Team for the second straight year. Additionally, Hagmann is a finalist for the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference (SCAC) Woman of the Year, which will be announced this month.
Joining Hagmann as Scholar All-Americans were 200-yard freestyle relay teammates Lauren Cuda, Abbie Jones, and Star Rosales. Cuda received Scholar All-America distinction for the second time in her career.
Tiger men's divers Anthony Liva and Daniel Valmassei also became Scholar All-Americans. Valmassei was an Honorable Mention All-American on the 1-meter board at the NCAA Division III Championships. Liva barely missed the finals on the low board. Women's diver Christine Peterson also picked up Scholar All-America honors and was a competitor at the NCAA Championships.
Trinity's men's and women's squads were earlier designated as Division III Scholar All-America Teams for the spring semester by the CSCAA. The Tiger women's team posted a GPA of 3.41, while the men chalked up a 3.09 mark.
Scott Trompeter is Trinity's head swimming coach, while Stan Randall heads the diving program.
