CLAREMONT, CA.- Pitzer College's Maddie Kauahi of the Pomona-Pitzer Women's Swim & Dive program was named to the 2018-19 Google Cloud Academic All-District Team after her combined success in the pool and the classroom this past season.
The now-graduated swimmer ended her senior season on a high note, helping the Sagehens to a seventh-place finish at the NCAA and a back-to-back SCIAC Championship. Kauahi was the three-time All-American this season in relays, ending her career with 11 All-American awards. She also was named SCIAC Champion in five different events this year.
Kauahi has also won Scholar Athlete of the Year by Sagehens Athletics earlier in the year and graduated as a Psychology Major from Pitzer College with a 3.74 GPA. She has worked as a volunteer educational intern and teacher's assistant for the past three years at The Children's School and plans to serve in Teach for America next year.
