It was announced on Tuesday that senior swimmer Tyler Harp (San Bernardino, CA) added to his illustrious career at the University of Redlands by earning College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) Capital One® Academic All-America recognition as a member of the Third Team.
Following his Academic All-District First-Team selection, Harp advanced onto the national ballot and successfully received All-America honors for the Men's At-Large awards for NCAA Division III.
Harp celebrated his graduation on May 26 with a cumulative GPA of 3.467 as a Biology major.
In addition, the four-time Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SCIAC) Athlete of the Year qualified for the U.S. Olympic Trials in the 100 Free after swimming a career-best time of 51.18 in late March.
This followed his individual title in the 200 Free at the 2012 NCAA Division III Swimming & Diving Championships where he led the Bulldogs to a program-high fifth-place finish.
During his tenure, he amassed multiple All-America nods for top-eight performances and currently owns seven school records.
