Nicolas Morrell (Bend, Ore.), a recent graduate of Seattle University and a four-year member of the Redhawk swimming program, has been named Honorable Mention Scholar All-America by the College Swimming Coaches Association of America (CSCAA), announced Monday by the national organization.

Morrell is one of 169 male Division I swimmers to receive Honorable Mention Scholar All-America recognition. The CSCA Honorable Mention Scholar All-America Award is presented to college and university swimmers and divers who have achieved a grade point average of 3.5 or higher for the semester, or cumulative average, and have achieved a "B" time standard but did not compete in their national championship.

Morrell graduated with cum laude honors from Seattle U with a Bachelor of Criminal Justice degree with departmental honors, finishing with a 3.625 grade point average. Morrell posted a “B” cut time in the 200 backstroke at the 2014 Western Athletic Conference Championships by winning the “B” final in 1:46.26, also a new school record.

This is the second straight year that at least one Redhawk individual has received the Honorable Mention Scholar All-America Award, as James Gilmore and Kevlyn Richards both earned the honor last year. Just last week, both the Seattle U men’s and women’s swim teams received the CSCAA Team Scholar All-America Award for their exemplary performances in the classroom during the 2013-14 academic year.

The Seattle University men’s and women’s swim teams will once again compete within the Western Athletic Conference during the 2014-15 campaign, with the 2015 WAC Swimming and Diving Championships taking place Feb. 25-28 in San Antonio, Texas.
