COLUMBIA — Eighteen members of the Missouri swimming and diving program were named Scholar All-Americans by the College Swimming Coaches Association of America on Monday.

The Tigers had nine first team Scholar All-Americans and nine honorable mention selections, according to a news release from the MU Athletics Department.

Five Missouri women and four Missouri men earned first team honors in 2014: Danielle Barbiea, Brittany Hammond, Anna Patterson, Lauren Reedy, Katharine Ross, Michael Chadwick, Carter Griffin, Andrew Sansoucie and Clark Thomas.

Additionally four women and five men earned honorable mentions: Madison Bridges, Lauren Callin, Andrea Marko, Ellie Suek, Mark Conroy, Alex Glogoza, Stephen Sobczak, Martin Wallace and Keiser Witte.

The women’s team was also named a CSCAA Scholar All-America Team with a team record 3.36 GPA.

To be considered for the Individual Scholar All-America first team recognition or an honorable mention, an athlete must have at least a 3.5 GPA — either cumulative or for the term. To qualify for recognition, an athlete must have competed at the NCAA Championships while honorable mentions must have posted "B" standard times in swimming or competed at the NCAA championships.
