Two-time NCAA swimming champion and Olympian Brett Fraser from the Cayman Islands has now also earned recognition as an Academic All-American. To be considered for that award, a student-athlete must have achieved a cumulative GPA of at least 3.30, be at least a sophomore academically and be a starter or key player on the team. Brett was named to the third team after achieving an impressive 3.43 GPA in finance, also making it onto the academic honor roll three times.
“Congratulations to Brett. He is the ultimate role model. Not only is he pushing the limits with his swimming, but he is showing every aspiring student that academics needn’t lag behind,” Sports Minister Mark Scotland said. “We are proud to have someone like Brett represent us on the world stage and wish him well for the future.”
