Although her record-setting Tennessee swimming career ended months ago, Kelsey Floyd has continued to earn accolades for her performances in and out of the pool.
On Thursday, Floyd was named a Capital One first-team Academic All-American by CoSIDA.
Floyd, a Recreation and Sport Management major, was selected Academic All-District last month and is a three-time member of the SEC Academic Honor Roll after putting together a senior year GPA of 3.70. She earned an NCAA Postgraduate Scholarship last month worth $7,500.
She was a Capital One second-team Academic All-American as a junior.
In competition, Floyd finished her career with the most career All-America honors in program history with 24, earning six as a senior. She swam a leg on all three of the Lady Vols' NCAA championship relay teams in March. Her performances helped Tennessee to finish third in the team standings, the best result in program history.
Though Floyd's college career has ended, her competitive swimming career has not. The Vols and Lady Vols are gearing up for the USA Swimming World Championship Trials later this month. Floyd is also scheduled to swim in the World University Games this summer where UT head coach Matt Kredich is coaching the U.S. women's squad.
