TOWSON, Md.- Goucher women's swimming has won the College Swimming & Diving Coaches Association of America (CSCAA) Scholar All-America awards for the 19th year in a row.

"It has become a benchmark for our teams," says head coach Tom Till. "I use this to compare our team to other swim teams in our conference and nationally. It takes a 3.0 so this is a minimum expectation I have for our team."
