BC Swimmer Wins NCAA Post-Grad Scholarship


CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. (May 2011) - BC senior John Maloy has been awarded a 2011 NCAA Post-Graduate Scholarship, which recognizes a student's athletic and academic achievements, as well as campus involvement, community service, volunteer activities and demonstrated leadership. An honors student in the College of Arts and Sciences, Maloy also has received an ACC post-graduate scholarship.

The NCAA award was created in 1964 to promote and encourage postgraduate education by rewarding the Association's most accomplished student-athletes.

Maloy, who hails from Wildwood Crest, New Jersey, concluded his Boston College swim career with his fourth MVP Award, in addition to his three HM Groden Awards for the Outstanding Performance of the Season (2011, 2010 and 2009) and four James Kane Awards for Academic Achievement. He graduates as BC Men's Swimming all-time leader in wins with 172 and all-time leader in points scored with 2024.75. He holds six of the Eagles' individual team records – in the 200 & 500 freestyles, the 50 & 100 backstrokes and the 200 & the 400 individual medleys - among other distinctions.

A team co-caption, Maloy is also an officer of BC’s award-winning Student-Athlete Advisory Committee, which oversees service opportunities. (Read more about his accomplishments at BC here.)

This is the third time in the last six years that the Eagles Swimming & Diving Program has had an NCAA Post Graduate Scholarship recipient: previous winners were Elizabeth Byron in 2006 and Chris Wilson-Byrne in 2007.

Maloy will attend Georgetown University Law Center next year. He and his co-captains – Brett Bromann and Dominick Boccio, who also are headed to law school next fall - led the Boston College Men’s team to recognition by the College Swim Coaches Association as an Academic All-America Team with the third highest team GPA of all NCAA Division I swimming programs.
