Four outstanding Tufts University swimmers have been recognized for their exceptional performances both in the pool and in the classroom. Graduate student Peter LaBarge and juniors Emmett Adams, Charlie Duffy, and Eric Lundgren were selected by College Sports Communicators (CSC) to earn a spot on the 2023-24 Academic All-District® Men’s Swimming and Diving Teams. This is the second consecutive year that LaBarge has received this recognition.

To be nominated for this prestigious award, student-athletes must contribute significantly to their team with a minimum 3.50 cumulative GPA at their current institution. Each team is limited to four nominations, and individuals must compete in at least four events or finish in the top eight at the conference meet to be eligible. Adams is studying Psychology/Clinical, Duffy is studying Human Factors Engineering, Lundgren is studying Environmental Engineering, and LaBarge is studying Biology.

The Tufts men’s swimming team finished ninth at the NCAA Division III Championships in March and was runner-up in the New England Small College Athletic Conference under the leadership of head coach Adam Hoyt. The CSC Academic All-America® program recognizes honorees in four divisions – NCAA Division I, NCAA Division II, NCAA Division III and NAIA.
