NORFOLK, Va. — Jenni Clune (Bowie, Md./Eleanor Roosevelt), a rising senior on the Washington College women's swim team, has been named a Scholar All-America Honorable Mention by the College Swimming Coaches Association of America (CSCAA). In addition, the Washington College women's swim team has once again been awarded Team Scholar All-America status by the CSCAA.
Clune earned her Scholar All-America Honorable Mention status by maintaining a grade-point average of 3.5 or better and swimming at least one NCAA Division III Championship provisional qualifying time. (Scholar All-America First-Team selections maintained the 3.5 or better grade-point average and competed at the NCAA Division III Championships.)
Clune, the team's reigning Most Valuable Swimmer, swam provisional qualifying times in the 100 breaststroke at the 2017 Centennial Conference Championships, taking gold in the final after breaking the school and conference records in the preliminaries. She won a total of six medals (three individual, three relay) at this past winter's Centennial Championships. She is a two-time member of the Centennial Conference Academic Honor Roll.
To qualify for the team award, the team must finish with a team grade-point average of at least 3.0 for the spring semester. The Shorewomen finished the semester with a team grade-point average of 3.43, the second-highest grade-point average among all Centennial Conference women's swimming teams.
