COLUMBIA, S.C. -- South Carolina diver Courtney Forcucci has earned College Swimming Coaches Association of America Scholar All-America honors, while both the Gamecock men and women's teams received Scholar All-America Team accolades for the second straight semester.

Forcucci wrapped up her stellar Carolina career in March at the NCAA Championships. A native of Fort Mill, S.C., Forcucci earned two All-America honors, finishing fifth on the three-meter springboard and 15th in the one-meter competition. At the SEC Championships, she set the SEC and school record to win gold on the three-meter board and claimed bronze on the one-meter board. During the regular season, Forcucci recorded 16 individual wins. She was also named South Carolina's Female Scholar Athlete of the Year.

As a program, the award concludes an outstanding year academically, as both teams also earned the honor for the fall semester.

The Scholar All-America award is given to swimmers and divers who achieved a 3.5 cumulative GPA or higher and qualified for the NCAA Championships. The Scholar All-America Team award is presented to college and university swimming and diving teams that have achieved a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher. The award is presented to teams achieving this standard in the fall semester and in the semester of the NCAA Swimming and Diving Championships.
