NEW HAVEN, Conn. – Nine members of the Yale men's swimming and diving team were selected as Individual Scholar All-American or received honorable mentions from the College Swimming and Diving Coaches Association of America (CSCAA). 

Individual Scholar All-American honors recognize student-athletes who achieved a grade point average of 3.50 or higher and participated in a NCAA Swimming and Diving Championship.

This year, former captain Brian Hogan '16 and rising junior Kei Hyogo represented Yale at the 2016 NCAA Men's Division I Swimming and Diving Championships, earning first-team recognition from the CSCAA. 

Seven more members of the team received Scholar All-American honorable mentions from the CSCAA.  These student-athletes also achieved a grade point average of 3.50 or higher and a "B" time standard or competed at a regional or zone qualifying meet.  This year, recent graduates Josh Ginsborg '16, Kevin Stang '16 and Victor Zhang '16 received honorable mentions – along with rising senior Ben Lerude, rising juniors Jonathan Rutter and Derek Kao, and rising sophomore Scott Bole.

The announcement of the Individual Scholar All-American awards follows CSCAA's recognition of Yale men's swimming and diving team as a Scholar All-America team.  Yale had the second highest collective grade point average among NCAA Division I men's swimming and diving programs for the 2016 spring semester.
