The Missouri Valley Conference announces the 2013 Swimming and Diving Scholar-Athlete Team following the completion of the 2012-2013 conference season.

Scholar-Athlete honors require athletes to have completed at least one year and maintain either a 3.2 grade-point average and obtain all-conference honors, achieve a 3.5 grade-point average and finish top sixteen in an individual event at the conference championships, or maintain a 3.8 grade-point average and participate in the MVC championship.

Fifty-two student-athletes qualified for the Valley 2013 Swimming and Diving Scholar-Athlete team, with three student-athletes averaging a perfect 4.00 GPA and twenty-two student-athletes above an impressive 3.8 grade-point average. Illinois State claims the most spots on the scholar-athlete team with fourteen.
