Lashley Named Scholar All-American

LOS ANGELES — Occidental's top swimmer earned a distinguished honor for his work in the pool and in the classroom last week.

Austin Lashley, an All-SCIAC performer in the 100 and 200 fly, was named a CSCAA Scholar All-America Team Honorable Mention selection for posting better than a 3.50 grade point average while achieving NCAA "B" Cut times in the 100 and 200 fly.

Lashley, an economics major from Lake Washington HS and Kirkland, Wash., set school records in the 50 free, 400 free relay and the 200 fly during the 2016-17 season.

Both the Occidental men's and women's swimming and diving teams also earned Team Scholar All-America honors for posting above a 3.0 GPA in the spring semester.
