Three W&L Swimmers Earn CSCAA Scholar All-America Honors

EVANSTON, Ill. – The College Swimming Coaches Association of America (CSCAA) recently announced its 2014 Individual Scholar All-Americans for the 2013-14 school year and the Washington and Lee women's swimming team had three student-athletes recognized.

Sophomore Stephanie Foster (Columbia, Md. / Long Reach), junior Caroline Hamp (Avon Lake, Ohio / Elyria Catholic), and senior Lauren Kasoff (Owings Mills, Md. / Saint Paul's) each were named to the honorable mention squad after achieving a grade point average of 3.5 or higher for the semester, or cumulative average, and posting a "B" time standard but did not qualify or compete at the national championship.

Foster received the honor for the first time after garnering the ODAC Scholar-Athlete of the Year Award and CoSIDA/Capital One Academic All-District honors earlier in the year.  Foster was named First Team All-ODAC for the second straight year after winning the 100 back and producing an ODAC record and NCAA "B" Cut time of 57.76 at the ODAC Championships.  She also helped her team to a win in the 200-yard medley relay (1:46.24), setting ODAC overall and meet records as well as an NCAA "B" Cut time.

Hamp picks up her first All-America honor after she helped the Generals set a school, ODAC and meet record in winning the 200-yard medley relay with a time of 1:46.24. Individually, she also won the 100 fly with a school-record time of 57.64, which was also good for an NCAA "B" Cut time. Last season, she was named the ODAC Swimmer of the Week on January 20th and earned First Team All-Conference laurels for the third-straight year.

A 2013-14 team captain, Kasoff earned honorable mention honors via finishing second in the 200 fly (2:10.25) and second in the 400 IM in a school-record and NCAA "B" Cut time of 4:36.07. She was also named First Team All-ODAC for the third consecutive season and holds the school record in the 200 fly and is a member of the 800 free relay squad that owns the school record. 

The team finished its season with a 9-2 record en route to earning its seventh-consecutive ODAC title and the 24th in program history.
