PASADENA (July 5, 2018) – Caltech swim & dive senior Brittany Percin (Lake Tahoe, Calif. / Stanford Online) and freshman Alex Janosi (Ann Arbor, Mich. / Dexter) have been named College Swimming & Diving Coaches Association of America Scholar All-America and Honorable Mentioned, respectively.
Percin re-set a number of her own records and now holds six individual program records, as well as a share of all five relay records. She qualified for her first NCAA Championships with a "B" cut in the 200 Free as the leadoff leg of the 800 Free Relay on opening night of the SCIAC Championships. The Beavers placed eighth as a team at SCIACs for its best finish since the conference expanded and trailed the fifth-place team by fewer points than they outscored ninth place.
Janosi set a pair of individual records this season in the 200 IM and 200 Free, the latter in which he earned his "B" cut, and played a part on three record-breaking relays. Caltech repeated in sixth place at the SCIAC Championships with a 23-percent scoring increase over 2016-17, finishing a mere 28 points shy of fifth.

The Honorable Mentioned award recognizes students who have achieved a 3.50 grade point average and achieved a "B" time standard or competed at an NCAA Regional or Zone Diving qualifier.
