Baylor School Swimming & Diving Receives NISCA Scholar Team Awards

CHATTANOOGA, TN- On July 3, 2020, the Baylor School Swimming & Diving teams were recognized by the National Interscholastic Swimming Coaches Association (NISCA) as 2019-2020 Scholar Teams.

The Baylor School boys had a 3.628 team GPA to earn NISCA Silver Level Academic status.  The boy’s team also got it done in the pool as they claimed the 2020 TISCA State Swimming & Diving Championship.

The Baylor School girls finished with a 3.600 team GPA earning NISCA Silver Level Academic Status.  The girls were equally impressive in the pool taking the 2020 TISCA State Swimming & Diving Championship.

The NISCA/ Scholar Team Award recognizes teams achieving high academic standards. The award is based on the average cumulative GPA of an entire varsity team (single-gender) of 12 or more athletes. The three levels of recognition are:

Bronze Level 3.200 – 3.499
Silver Level 3.500 – 3.749
Gold Level 3.750 – 4.000

The goal of the NISCA/ Scholar Team Award is to recognize academic success in the classroom for entire swimming, diving, and water polo teams, as well as athletic success in the pool.

“This group of young student-athletes accomplishments this past season exemplifies what I believe the Baylor Swimming program is all about said,” Head Coach Dan Flack.  “These young people worked diligently in both the classroom and in the pool, doing all the little things that lead to such exemplary accolades in the classroom and in competition.  Our entire coaching staff is very proud of both teams recognition from NISCA. Hard work absolutely pays off.”
