Six Pioneers Named to Academic All-Summit League Team

March 9, 2017

ELMHURST, Ill. (DU/The Summit League) – The University of Denver swimming and diving program had six prominent members named to the Academic All-Summit League Team as announced by the Summit League on Thursday.

On the men’s side, seniors Kyle Robrock and Ben Severino, and junior Anton Loncar were recognized for their academic successes in the classroom and athletic prowess in the pool. Robrock and Loncar both received their second Academic All-Summit League team selections of their careers as the duo was also named to last year’s squad.

For the women, a trio of seniors made the cut as Nicole Cassou, Clara Jenck and Johanna Roas were selected for the academic award. Roas repeated her performance in 2016-17 after making the team as a junior while Cassou tallied the highest GPA on the women’s side at 3.95.

In total, 21 student-athletes (10 men, 11 women) representing six institutions were chosen for the teams as voted on by the institution’s faculty athletics representatives and sports information directors with all ties standing.


 

 

Denver had the most swimmers named between the two teams with six, while South Dakota State had five, South Dakota and IUPUI with four and Western Illinois and Omaha each with one.

To be eligible for The Summit League Academic All-League team, a student-athlete must have a cumulative grade-point average (GPA) of at least 3.30 (on a 4.0 scale), completed at least one full academic year at the current institution and participated in 50 percent of their team's competitions.  The men's and women's swimming and diving all-league teams are made up of the 10 student-athletes receiving the most votes with all ties standing.
