Four Hoosiers Earn CSC Academic All-America Status


BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – Four student-athletes from the Big Ten Champion Indiana men’s swimming and diving team earned College Sports Communicators Academic All-America honors, the organization announced Wednesday (April 24).

Juniors Quinn Henninger and Josh Matheny each made the first team while senior Tomer Frankel and junior Carson Tyler captured second-team laurels.

The Academic All-America program celebrates the combination of athletic and academic achievement. Nominated student-athletes have a cumulative GPA above 3.50 and compete in at least four contests during the season.

Combining with the women’s honors, the Indiana swimming and diving program totaled six CSC Academic All-Americans – tied with Texas for the most in NCAA Division-I. Junior Ching Hwee Gan was named the CSC Academic All-America Team Member of the Year on Tuesday, and senior Anne Fowler also earned a first-team selection.

The men’s quartet helped Indiana win its third-straight Big Ten Championship. IU placed fourth for the second consecutive season.

Henninger and Tyler contributed to perhaps the greatest team diving performance at an NCAA Championships, combining for five of Indiana’s program-record six medals. Tyler captured national titles in the 3-meter springboard and platform events and earned bronze on the 1-meter board. Henninger was the NCAA runner-up on both springboards and took seventh on platform.

Tyler has a 3.91 cumulative grade-point average as a political science major. Henninger studies finance and has recorded a 3.86 GPA. Both divers have earned Academic All-Big Ten honors from each of their two eligible seasons.

For the second-straight season, Frankel finished top five in the NCAA in both the 100-yard and 200-yard butterfly events. Frankel repeated as a medalist in the 100 fly, taking second in 43.85 which lowered his own program record.

Matheny is a repeat CSC Academic All-American, having earned third-team honors as a sophomore. He finished sixth nationally in the 100-yard breaststroke, his first championship final in the event. At the Big Ten Championships, Matheny placed second in the 200 breast and fourth in the 100 breast. Both Frankel and Matheny competed on the 400-yard medley relay for a third consecutive season, earning IU’s sixth-straight top-five finish in the event.

Matheny owns a 3.82 cumulative GPA as an economics major, and Frankel has a 3.51 studying environmental management. Frankel is a three-time Academic All-Big Ten honoree, and Matheny is a two-time Big Ten honor roll recipient, two-time CSCAA Scholar All-American and 2023 Big Ten Distinguished Scholar.
