USC’s Kaitlyn Dobler Named CoSIDA Academic All-American
Southern California standout swimmer Kaitlyn Dobler added an additional accolade to her trophy case Wednesday as she was selected to the 2022 Academic All-America® Division I women's at-large second team by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA).
Dobler was among 48 decorated student-athletes across the country voted onto the CoSIDA Academic All-America® Division I women's at-large first, second and third teams. The full list of 2022 women's at-large honorees can be viewed at CoSIDA.com. The rising junior is the first Trojan swimmer or diver to earn CoSIDA Academic All-America honors since diver Henry Fusaro was named to the men's at-large Third Team in 2020.
Sophomore Kaitlyn Dobler carries a 3.71 grade point average in Astronautical Engineering. The Trojan turned in a colossus 2022 season, winning an NCAA crown (100-yard breaststroke) and defending her conference title in the 100-yard breaststroke. The 3x All-American contributed to multiple USC record setting relays at the NCAA Championships and turned in a conference record in her specialty event (100-yard breaststroke). The Portland native also swam on USC's 400-yard medley relay that turned in the fastest time in school history to finish seventh at the NCAA Championships.
Recently, Dobler was named to the Pac-12's Winter Academic Honor Roll and the CoSida Academic All-District Team (Women's At-Large) after a successful year in the classroom.
