June 10, 2010
June 10, 2010, Greencastle, Ind. - A sophomore computer science major from Cedar Rapids, Iowa, Catie Baker has been selected to the ESPN The Magazine Academic All-America® College Division Women's At-Large Second Team as chosen by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA). Through three semesters, Baker posted a 4.00 cumulative grade point average.
Baker was the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference female swimmer of the year this season after setting a DePauw single-season record with 615.75 total points. She was also named conference swimmer of the meet with wins in the 200-yard individual medley and the 100 & 200 breaststrokes.
Baker earned all-America honors at the NCAA Division III Championships with a sixth-place finish in the 100 breast and earned honorable mention all-America in the 200 individual medley and the 200 breast. She also holds two school individual records and two more on relays.
Baker is DePauw's 42nd Academic All-America selection and the first DePauw student-athlete to earn the honor as a sophomore since three-time honoree Nancy Gritter did so in 1986.
