Toledo women’s swimming and diving student-athletes Izzy Jones, Maureen O’Sullivan and Alida Ramden have been named to the College Swimming & Diving Coaches Association of America Scholar All-America Team.

The award recognizes students who have achieved a GPA of 3.50 or higher and competed at their respective National Collegiate Athletic Association, National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics, and National Junior Athletic Association Swimming and Diving Championships.

In total, the College Swimming & Diving Coaches Association of America selected 1,069 swimmers and divers for its Scholar All-America Team.

The trio of Rockets also were honored for having achieved at least a  “B” cut time at an NCAA regional meet.

“I’m very proud of Izzy, Maureen and Alida for achieving greatness in the pool and classroom,” Head Coach Jonas Persson said. “They are leaders in and out of the pool, and are great role models for our team, especially for our incoming freshmen.

“This is what it’s all about as a student-athlete: having success academically and athletically. I’m thankful for our coaches’ association for working so hard to promote the sport of collegiate swimming and diving. Our goal is to increase this number every year.”

The women’s swimming and diving team earned a combined 3.59 GPA in the spring, the third-best mark in the Mid-American Conference.
