On Sundays during the month of September, members of the Fairmont State University men’s and women’s swim teams have spent some quality time in the pool. But they’re not working on their technique or trying to shed time off their personal best.
They’re working as “buddies” for children involved in Corridor Chapter of the Autism Society of West Virginia, each paired with a participant to offer free swim lessons.
Fairmont State's women's swimming team has been named a Scholar All-America Team by the College Swimming Coaches Association of America (CSCAA).
To qualify as a CSCAA Scholar All-America squad, teams must post a GPA of 3.0 or higher for the previous semester. Fairmont State had a team grade-point average of 3.12. The Falcons were one of 34 teams in NCAA Division II to qualify for the recognition.
