Mike Shaw Earns Academic All-District Honors

SPRINGFIELD, Mass., May 27, 2004 – Springfield College All-American diver Mike Shaw has been named to the 2004 Academic All-District I College Division At-Large Second Team, announced today.

Shaw, a Westfield, Mass., native who recently completed his sophomore season at SC, carries a 3.9 grade-point average and plans to pursue a career in physical therapy.

In 2004, Shaw won the NCAA Division III national championship in three-meter diving and was runner-up on the one-meter board, guiding the Pride to a 17th-place finish. As a freshman at the 2003 NCAA Championships, he was third on the three-meter board and sixth in one-meter diving. The four-time All-American also won his second-straight New England Women’s and Men’s Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) Male Diver-of-the-Year Award, and swept both diving events at the conference meet for the second season in a row. Shaw, who won the Springfield College Outstanding Sophomore Male Individual Sport Athlete Award, holds three school records and eclipsed a 15-year-old record in three-meter diving this season.

To be eligible for Verizon Academic All-District teams, a student-athlete must have a minimum 3.2 g.p.a. and be a starter or significant reserve on his team. The Academic All-District I College Division At-Large team is voted on by the sports information directors of Division II and III institutions located in New England and New York.
