Wabash swimmers chant prior to the start of the North Coast Athletic Championships. The Little Giants posted a 3.29 cumulative team GPA in the spring semester to earn Scholar All-America honors from the College Swimming Coaches Association of America.
The Little Giants produced a cumulative 3.29 grade point average as a team for the 2014 spring semester. Wabash was one of 92 NCAA Division III programs to post a team GPA of 3.00 or higher. In addition to their excellent work in the classroom, Head Coach Brent Noble's swimmers set 10 new school records and posted seven NCAA provisional qualifying times during the 2013-2014 season.
Noble is entering his second season as the head swim coach for the Little Giants. His team finished fourth at last year's NCAC meet. He previously coached women's swimming at Sacred Heart University in Fairfield, Conn.
