Ten Individuals Claim Swim/Dive Scholar Honors; Both Teams Also Recognized
Five men and five women from the Princeton swimming and diving teams were honored as 2013 Individual Scholar All-Americans by the College Swimming Coaches Association of America. Both squads were also recognized as 2013 CSCAA Scholar All-America Teams.
Highlighting the list is rising senior co-captain Lisa Boyce, the lone Princetonian named to the Scholar All-American First Team, which honors those who have achieved a cumulative grade point average of 3.5 or higher, for the semester or cumulative average, and have qualified for and competed at their respective national championship. Boyce, who swept the 50 free, 100 free and 100 back, earned All-America honors in the 100 free at the NCAA Championships.
Randi Brown, Sarah Furgatch, Rachel Zambrowicz and Helen Zitkovsky were the four women who earned All-America Honorable Mention, which is presented to college and university swimmers and divers, who have achieved a grade point average of 3.5 or higher, for the semester or cumulative average, and have achieved a “B” time standard, but have not qualified to compete in their respective national championship.
Furgatch earned the pretigious Fulbright Scholarship upon her graduation, while Brown, Zambrowicz and Zitkovsky were each members of the Princeton diving corps. All five of the honorees helped Princeton knock off unbeaten Harvard to win the 2013 Ivy League championship, the Tigers' 11th in the last 14 years.
Five members of the five-time reigning Ivy League champion men's team earned All-America Honorable Mention, including rising senior co-captain Daniel Hasler, a three-time finalist at the 2013 Ivy League championships.
Graduated seniors Will Lawley and Stevie Vines joins rising juniors Michael Hauss and Michael Manhard on the All-America Honorable Mention list. Vines earned second-team All-Ivy League honors, as well as the Career High Point diver honors, at the Ivy Championships, while Hauss was a finalist in the 200 free and Manhard qualified for the 3-meter A finals. Lawley is a former first-team All-Ivy League honoree.
