BERKELEY - Five swimmers from the 2007-08 California team - Justin Pollard, Jernej Godec, Mark Eckert, Louis Vayo and Nick Ferrif - earned academic All-America honors from the College Swimming Coaches Association of America and three Golden Bears claimed honorable mention consideration, the coaching organization announced this week. Also, the CSCAA lauded last season's Cal team for having one of the top grade-point averages in the nation with a 3.08.

Eckert, Godec, Pollard and Vayo completed their collegiate careers last spring; Nick Ferrif is a sophomore on this season's team. Pollard, the Pac-10's 2008 representative to the NCAA Student-Athlete Advisory Council, led last year's Bears with a 4.00 GPA followed by Godec (3.908), an Olympian and five-time All-American in 2008, Eckert (3.85), a two-time 2008 All-American, Vayo (3.823), a two-time honorable mention All-American last season, and Ferrif (3.654), who competed in the 2008 U.S. Olympic Trials.

Current Cal junior swimmers and 2008 U.S. Olympic Trials participants Troy Nissen (3.60), Matt Scanlan (3.543) and Scott Sorge (3.533) earned honorable mention academic All-America distinction for last season.

The 2008-09 Bears return to action when they host Washington on Oct. 30 in their first dual meet of the season at Spieker Aquatics Complex.
