Five members of the WPI swimming & diving program, including Jennifer Day of Chelmsford, secured College Swimming & Diving Coaches Association of America All-America Team honors for their work in the pool and in the classroom.

Day, a three-time honorable mention, collected her third CSCAA Scholar All-America honor.

The individuals achieved a GPA of 3.50 and competed at an NCAA Regional.

WPI’s Eva Barinelli of Tewksbury was recognized following the spring rowing season by being named to the NIRC All-Academic Team, as announced by USRowing.

In all, 16 members of the team were recognized following the May regattas. It was the second NIRC honor for Barinelli, a junior who rowed on the Women’s Varsity Eight.

For a student-athlete to be named to the NIRC All-Academic Team they must maintain a GPA of 3.35 and be a varsity rower.
