The Team Scholar All American Award is presented to college and university swimming and diving teams, who have achieved a team grade point average of 3.0 or higher. The award is presented twice annually, once in the fall semester and again in the spring to recognize teams achieving a 3.0 in the semester coinciding with the NCAA Swimming and Diving Championship.
The Pride earned a combined GPA of 3.55, tying the team for the 17th highest GPA in the country among Division III schools. There were a total of 140 schools honored with the award.
Individually, six student-athletes received the CSCAA Individual Scholar All-America Award which is presented to swimmers and divers who have achieved a cumulative grade point average of 3.5 or higher for the academic term coinciding with the NCAA Swimming and Diving Championship and have qualified for and competed at the Championship. Those receiving the award included Delaney Dyjak (Ludlow, Mass.), Christiana Greco (Wilbraham, Mass.), Emily Medeiros (Wakefield, Mass.), Callie Phillips (East Longmeadow, Mass.), Kelsey Poole (Westfield, Mass.) and Jennifer Thompson (Cheshire, Conn.).
Two more student-athletes earned the Honorable Mention Scholar All-America Award, which is presented to swimmers and divers who have achieved a grade point average of 3.5 or higher for the semester, or cumulative average, and have achieved a "B" time standard but did not qualify or compete in their respective national championship. Melanie Avdoulos (East Longmeadow, Mass.) and Kyra Breitweiser (Westwood, N.J.) both received the award.
Besides excelling in the classroom, Springfield also had a strong season in the pool. Senior Kellie Pennington (Monson, Mass.) closed a historic career with her second NCAA national championship while Thompson picked up her sixth and seventh All-America honors on the diving boards. Besides Pennington and Thompson, the Pride had five other student-athletes receive All-America honors in the 2013-14 season, including Dyjak, Phillips, Medeiros, Ashleigh Monroe (Southbury, Conn.) and Nicole Scotto (Southbury, Conn.), who received CSCAA Honorable Mention All-American recognition.
