Academic honors for a member of Davidson’s women’s swimming and diving teams.


RICHMOND, Va. — Davidson swimmer Shelby Stanley, this year’s Atlantic 10 Most Outstanding Performer, has been named to the College Swimming and Diving Coaches Association of America’s Scholar All-American team.

Stanley, who just completed her sophomore year, is the first Wildcat to get the honor since Riley League and Clay Resweber in 2018. She was named to the CSCAA Second Team (also called Honorable Mention), having met the marks of at least a 3.50 GPA and an NCAA “B” qualifying time. She was named to the A-10 All-Academic team last month.

A psychology major from Roanoke, Va., Stanley secured seven medals, including five golds, at the A-10 Championships in April. She won A-10 championships in the 100 and 200 butterfly and set the new school marks twice in both events, ultimately timing in at 53.11 in the 100 fly and 1:57.82 in the 200.

Stanley also swam on three A-10 champion relays, including the 200 medley, 200 free and 800 free. She took silver in the 50 free and bronze with the 400 medley relay.
