Westcott and Waters Receive NCAA Postgraduate Scholarships

May 1, 2003

Indianapolis, Ind. - Stanford swimmers Dan Westcott (The Woodlands, TX) and John Waters (Greenwich, CT) have been awarded postgraduate scholarships worth 6,900 dollars by the NCAA. Westcott and Waters were two of only six Division I swimmers to receive the scholarships for winter sports.

Both swimmers were recently named first-team Pac-10 All-Academic selections as well.

Westcott was a four-time All-American in 2003 (two individual, two relays) and was crowned Pac-10 Champion in the 200 backstroke. He was also a part of the 400 medley relay team that broke the conference record as well as the 200 medley relay which broke the conference meet record.

Waters garnered All-America honors as a member of the Cardinal's 800 freestyle relay team in 2003. He is a two-time conference all-academic pick and a four-time All-American for his career on The Farm.

To qualify for an NCAA postgraduate scholarship, a student-athlete must have an overall grade-point average of 3.200 (on a 4.000 scale) or its equivalent and must have performed with distinction as a member of the varsity team in the sport in which the student-athlete was nominated. The student-athlete must have behaved, both on and off the field, in a manner that has brought credit to the student-athlete, the institution and intercollegiate athletics. The student-athlete also must intend to continue academic work beyond the baccalaureate degree as a full-time or part-time graduate student.
