GRANVILLE, Ohio--  Denison University junior Bebe Wang was named the Google Cloud Academic All-America® Team Member of the Year for the Division III At-Large division as announced by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) on Wednesday.

A five-time national champion who boasts a 3.96 grade point average while double majoring in physics and mathematics, Wang is the fifth Denison student-athlete to receive the coveted Academic All-America® Team Member of the Year award joining Academic All-America Hall of Fame member Dr. Grant Jones '88 (football), Elaine Binkley '07 (XC, track & field), and fellow swimmers Kristin Goldthorpe '97, and Kristen Hohl '08.

Denison head coach Gregg Parini elaborated on the example Wang has set amongst his peers within the swimming & diving program.

"Bebe has quietly and impressively joined the ranks of our program's most distinguished student-athletes in history.  His work ethic, consistency, and vision for success in both the classroom and pool have been exemplary – qualities that are fueled by his humility, honesty, and integrity."

At the 2019 NCAA Division III Swimming & Diving Championship in Greensboro, North Carolina, Wang won the national championship in the 200 individual medley in 1:47.02 and swam on title-winning 400 and 800 freestyle relays.  In 2018, Wang captured his first national championship by winning the 200 backstroke in 1:45.37 in Indianapolis, Indiana.  He is an 11-time All-American and a three-time national team qualifier.

Wang was recently featured in the May 20 issue of Sports Illustrated where his accomplishments were featured in the Faces in the Crowd section.  He is a two-time North Coast Athletic Conference Swimmer of the Week and a two-time NCAC Academic Honor Roll honoree.  He has also been named Scholar All-American by the College Swimming Coaches Association of America in each of the last three seasons.

A native of Naperville, Illinois, Wang attended Metea Valley High School.  He is the son of Jun Fu and Hongjian Wang.

As the Academic All-America® Team Member of the Year for the At-Large program, Wang will move on to the ballot against the 11 other Academic All-America® Team Members of the Year for a chance to be named the overall Google Cloud Division III Academic All-American of the Year.

Created in 1952 by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA), the Google Cloud Academic All-America® program is a premier, nationwide college scholar-athlete awards program. It recognizes over 800 outstanding student-athletes annually in Division I, II, III and NAIA covering all NCAA championship sports.
