Valpo senior swimmer Brendon Johnson (Northbrook, Ill./Glenbrook North) was named to The Summit League Academic All-League team Thursday for his work both in the pool and in the classroom.

Johnson led the team in the 400 IM this season and ranked second on the squad in the 200 IM, the 200 fly and the 1000 free. The senior, who was named Summit League Swimmer of the Week on Nov. 19, leaves Valpo third in program history in the 400 IM, sixth in the 200 IM and seventh in the 100 IM.

In the classroom, Johnson carries a 3.513 cumulative grade point average as a biology and chemistry double major. Johnson has been a two-time member of both the Missouri Valley Conference and the Summit League Academic Honor Rolls, and earned the MVC Commissioner’s Academic Excellence Award last year. In addition, Johnson has helped the Valpo men’s swim team earn Scholar All-America recognition from the CSCAA each of the last two semesters.
