martinCSCAA SCHOLAR ATHLETE RELEASE

TERRE HAUTE, IND. -- The Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology men's and women's swimming and diving teams earned All-Academic honors from the College Swimming Coaches Association of America, in results released today.

Four individuals also received honors from the CSCAA.  Orion Martin (Dublin, Ohio/Coffman) captured first-team Individual Scholar All-America honors, with Paul Hintz (Pickerington, Ohio), Matthew King (Libertyville, Ill.) and Matthew Ross (West Lafayette) earning honorable mention recognition.

The men's swimming and diving team combined for a 3.20 team grade point average in the fall, and the women's squad compiled a grade point average of 3.07 to earn Scholar All-Academic Team recognition.

Martin was honored for combining a qualifying grade point average with a trip to the NCAA Division III Swimming and Diving National Championship.  The CCIW Swimmer of the Year missed honorable mention All-American honors by just one position in his first trip to the championships in March.

Hintz, King and Ross were recognized for achieving the qualifying grade point average and earning provisional qualification marks for the NCAA Division III Championships.

Rose-Hulman begins the swimming and diving season with a home meet against Millikin University on Oct. 25.
