BERKELEY - Eleven days after winning the NCAA team championship, the California women's swimming and diving team earned more accolades - the team placed 13 Golden Bears on the Pac-10 All-Academic teams, announced on Wednesday by Pac-10 Commissioner Larry Scott.

Three Cal swimmers - senior Amanda Sims (3.40 grade-point average, history major), and juniors Shelley Harper (3.45 GPA, integrative biology) and Sara Isakovic (3.45, psychology) - earned berths on the second team. Sims won the 100-yard butterfly crown and swam on the victorious 400-yard medley relay earlier this month at the NCAA Championships.

Eight Bears garnered conference academic honorable mention. Those Bears include five divers - senior Laura Sanford, juniors Alissa Barker and Molly Hayes, and sophomores Rachel Becker and Kelsey Heiken - and five swimmers - seniors Katie Kastes and Hannah Wilson, juniors Emily Bibb and Kelsey Hoff, and sophomore Caitlin Leverenz. Leverenz swam the breaststroke legs of the winning 200- and 400-yard medley relays at NCAAs, while Wilson led off the triumphant 200-yard freestyle relay at the national meet.

To be eligible for selection to the conference's academic teams, a student-athlete must have a minimum 3.0 overall grade-point average and be either a starter or significant contributor.
