The postseason accolades continue to roll in for Alison Maillard. The senior diver was one of 46 women selected to the 2020 Academic All-America At-Large Team by the College Sports Information Directors of America last week.

Maillard, a second-team selection, graduated in May with a degree in industrial and systems engineering from the Samuel Ginn College of Engineering. While at Auburn, she was a three-time CSCAA Scholar All-American and a three-time Winter SEC Academic Honor Roll selection. She finished with a 3.87 cumulative GPA.

It’s the latest honor for Maillard, who was named the SEC Female Diver of the Year following the season and also earned First Team All-SEC honors. In February, the senior won her first SEC championship on 1-meter with a school record 364.15 points. She finished third on the 3-meter to take bronze at the SEC meet.

Maillard collected three CSCAA All-American honors this year after qualifying for the NCAA Championships on all three diving events for the third consecutive season.

Maillard becomes the 13th Auburn swimmer or diver all-time to be recognized as a CoSIDA Academic All-American and the first since Kyle Owens in 2013.
