EASTON, Pa. - The College Swimming Coaches Association of America has announced that Lafayette women's swimming team has achieved the honor of CSCAA Academic All America Swimming Team for the fall semester, 1999. To qualify for this honor, the grade point average of the entire swimming and diving squad, including all team members on the eligibility list, must average at least 2.8 on a 4.0 scale. Lafayette accumulated a 3.18 team GPA, garnering an `excellent' commendation from the CSCAA.

The award is another in a long line for head coach Jim Dailey's squads. In Dailey's 13 semesters as the head women's swimming coach, the squad has made the CSCAA list all 13 times. Highlighting this year's academic success are swimmers Jessika Luth, Joelle Biedenbach, Katie DeVoldre and diver Heather Stoltz. Luth carries a 3.96 cumulative GPA, and last semester won the James L. Dyson award for Geology. Biedenbach and DeVoldre carry impressive cumulative averages of 3.43 and 3.27, respectively. Stoltz was awarded the Karl J. Ammerman prize for Mechanical Engineering.

"It's nice to see the women on this team recognized for their efforts" said Dailey, "not just in the swimming pool, but with their hard work and dedication to academics, in the classroom as well."

The women's swimming team finished 4-6 in dual meets this season, and placed sixth at the Patriot League Championships, less than 40 points behind Colgate for fifth place. In addition, the team sent eight swimmers to the ECAC championships. Individually in 1999-2000, Lafayette women swimmers set many school and personal records, including Nancy Haystrand in the 200 fly, and Erika Hoke in the 200 individual medley.
