LOS ANGELESCindy Dong keeps racking up the honors after an outstanding first year with the Occidental women's swimming and diving team.

The first year from Sarasota, Fla. was named a CSCAA Scholar All-American on Tuesday for achieving a grade point average of 3.50 or higher and competing at the NCAA Division III Swimming and Diving Championship meet.

"This is a great honor for Cindy and is a testament to her hard work both in the classroom and in the swimming pool," Oxy head coach Steve Webb said.

Dong's first season was highlighted by honorable mention All-American recognition in the 200 fly, as well as a SCIAC championship and the SCIAC meet and all-time conference record in the event at 2:02.13.
