The College Swimming Coaches Association of America announced the 2012-2013 All-America Teams, supported by Speedo, on Tuesday. Nine Bruins were bestowed All-America honors, including junior Ting Quah and sophomore Emma Ivory-Ganja, who were both named to the First Team.
Ivory-Ganja earned her First Team honor by virtue of her seventh-place finish in the Platform at the NCAA Championships in March. Quah also finished seventh, in the 100 Butterfly, at the NCAA's. Both awards were the first All-America honors for Ivory-Ganja and Quah.
Earning Honorable Mention accolades were senior Andrea Reigel, juniors Lauren Baker, Kathryn Murphy and Anna Senko, sophomores Jessica Khojasteh and Noelle Tarazona and freshman Katie Kinnear. It is the second straight All-America award for Murphy and Senko, who each earned the honor last season.
Khojasteh, Kinnear, Murphy and Quah were a part of the 200 Freestyle Relay Team that finished 16th to earn Honorable Mention honors at the NCAA's. Quah, Reigel, Senko and Tarazona were 13th in the 800 Free Relay to earn Honorable Mention A-A accolades. Baker garnered her All-American award thanks to a 10th-place finish in the 1650 Free.
