NOTRE DAME, Ind. - Junior Megan Farrell and senior Casey Wagner represented the Notre Dame swimming team on the College Swimming Coaches Association of America's (CSCAA) All-Academic list for recently released by the organization.. The duo earned Honorable Mention All-Academic accolades for their efforts in the classroom and pool over the course of the 2007-08 season.

Notre Dame finished with a team grade-point-average of 3.221 and ranked 52nd nationally in that category.

Wagner (Glenshaw, Pa.) earned an invitation to the U.S. Olympic Trials and took part in the 400 Free at the event in 2008. She was tabbed as an all-BIG EAST performer in the 1,650 Free after placing third at the league's championship meet. She finished the 2007-08 campaign with a 3.500 grade-point-average.

A native of Hopkinton, Mass., Farrell sported a 3.667 grade-point-average and capped off her sophomore campaign with a cameo at the U.S. Olympic Trials, swimming the 200 IM. She picked up a trio of all-BIG EAST honors (800 Free Relay, 400 Medley Relay and 400 Free Relay) as her 400 Free Relay (3:19.38) quartet set a school record in the event. Farrell qualified for four events for the 2007 NCAA Championships.

Notre Dame has earned 21 citations from this organization since 1997. Kellie Barton and Kristen Peterson were All-Academic honorees in 2002, the latest Irish student-athletes honored by the CSCAA, with Elizabeth Bargar earning the award in 2000 and 1999.
