NORFOLK, Va. – Ursinus College men's swimming rising sophomore Jacob Menzer received an honorable mention selection to the College Swimming Coaches Association of America (CSCAA) Scholar All-America team, it was announced Wednesday.
Menzer is the third Ursinus men's swimmer to merit Scholar All-America status, accomplished by maintaining a grade point average of 3.5 or higher and registering at least one NCAA Division III Championship provisional qualifying time. The CSCAA awards first-team laurels to those who compete at the NCAA Championships. Marcus Wagner '17 and Christian Hoops' 16 also merited honorable mention Scholar All-America certificates in 2014 and 2015, respectively.
Menzer logged a remarkable rookie campaign in which he broke three of the team's six individual freestyle records (200 – 1:41.70; 500 – 4:34.52; and 1650 – 16:12.92) and helped eclipse the 400-yard freestyle relay and 800-yard freestyle relay marks. He placed second in both the 200-yard freestyle and 500-yard freestyle at the Centennial Conference championships, earning All-CC honorable mention in each, and logged an NCAA B cut time with a 16:12.92 in the 1650 free.
The men's swimming team placed third at the CC championship and placed a school-record seven members on the all-conference squad.
