Triathlon Recognized as Scholar All-American Team
TEMPE, Ariz. – The Sun Devil Triathlon team was awarded the Team Scholar All-American honor by the Collegiate Triathlon Coaches Association and USA Triathlon.
Continuing their excellence in competition and in the classroom, Head Coach Cliff English's team earns Scholar All-American team recognition for the third consecutive year. Arizona State well-exceeded the minimum criteria, which was a team semester GPA of 3.2 or higher. Not only did each student-athlete surpass that mark on their own, the squad finished with an incredible 3.88 fall semester GPA.
Sun Devil Triathlon will once again have many individual Scholar All-Americans when the honors are awarded at the end of the semester, as student-athletes who achieve a GPA of 3.5 or higher will be recognized. Currently all 12 Sun Devils meet or exceed that threshold. Over the past two years, a total of 15 members of the program have received Scholar All-American honors.
The four-time defending National Champions have taken advantage of the unprecedented circumstances to not only train and improve in their sport, but also focus on their studies. The result was one of the best academic semesters in program history, with five individuals finishing with a Fall GPA of 4.0 or higher. They have also used this time to give back to the community, partnering with United Way and other charitable organizations.
