To earn the CSCAA honor, teams are required to post a GPA of 3.0 or better for the semester and maintain a roster of 12 or more student-athletes. Founded in 1922, the College Swimming Coaches Association of America – the oldest organization of college coaches in America – is a professional organization of college swimming and diving coaches dedicated to serving and providing leadership for the advancement of the sport of swimming and diving at the collegiate level.

Dixie State will take the next three weeks off from competition to prepare for the 2019 RMAC Swimming and Diving Championships, which will be held Feb. 13-16, in Lewisville, Texas.
