Rider Men and Women Swim to Success in the Classroom

LAWRENCEVILLE—Both the Rider University men’s and women's swimming and diving teams were recognized by the College Swimming Coaches Association of America (CSCAA) for compiling a team grade point average over a 3.00.

Rider, which competes in the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference, compiled a men’s team g.p.a. of 3.16 and a women’s team grade point average of 3.33.

“I was excited to see our team's performance in the classroom this spring,” said head coach Steve Fletcher.  “The consistent recognition our teams receive in this area is a testament to the degree to which our student-athletes value their academic opportunity at Rider University.  Academic achievement is emphasized athlete to athlete in the same way discipline in training is encouraged.”

The Broncs were one of 72 schools on the men’s side and 151 schools on the women’s side to earn the recognition for the Spring, 2013 semester.

Yale led the men’s honorees with a 3.57 g.p.a and East Carolina and North Texas had the highest women’s team grade point average (3.62).

Led by a 3.84 grade point average from then senior Matt Mitchell, Rider had 15 student-athletes recognized on the All-MAAC Academic team (3.20 g.p.a. or higher) in 2012-13.

Both Rider teams were recognized for the Fall 2012 semester by the CSCAA and the Bronc women were also recognized for the Spring 2012 semester.

This past February, the Rider men won the MAAC Championship with the Bronc women placing runner-up.
