The men's team finds itself in elite company, as only 64 programs across the country made the grades necessary to garner this award. Penn recorded a team GPA of 3.11 in the fall semester.
On the women's side, 136 teams passed the requirements, with the Quakers earning a GPA of 3.14 last semester.
The Team Scholar All-American awards are presented to collegiate swimming and diving teams who have achieved a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher. Penn will have the opportunity to repeat its academic honors a few months down the line, when the CSCAA names its Scholar All-America teams for the Spring 2013 semester.
