Wareham Named to CSCAA Scholar All-American Team

Penn State Altoona senior men's swimmer Jay Wareham (Leesburg, VA/Loudoun County) has been named to the Honorable Mention category of the College Swimming Coaches Association of America's Division III Scholar All-America team.

Wareham is the first Penn State Altoona men's swimmer in program history to earn a spot on the CSCAA's Scholar All-America squad.

At the conclusion of his junior year, Wareham held a 3.92 cumulative grade point average and has achieved no less than a 3.8 GPA in any of his semesters at Penn State Altoona. He was also named the school's 2013-2014 Male Scholar-Athlete of the Year and was selected to the Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference's All-Academic Team.

Wareham also posted a successful season in the pool during his junior campaign. During February's AMCC Championships, he earned first team All-Conference status in the 800 Yard Freestyle Relay, in which he was a member of the title-winning squad for the Lions. Wareham also qualified for the finals in two individual events -- the 200 Yard IM and 100 Yard Freestyle -- during the conference championships.

Wareham helped Penn State Altoona men's swimming finish as the AMCC Runners-Up with a team score of 207 in the three-day championship.

The CSCAA Honorable Mention Scholar All-America award is presented to college and university swimmers and divers who have achieved a grade point average of 3.5 or higher for the semester, or cumulative average, and have achieved a "B" time standard but did not qualify or compete in their respective national championship.
