WILLIAMSBURG, KY - Lindsey Wilson swimming coach Alicia Kemnitz has been named Mid-South Conference Men's Swimming Coach of the Year, conference officials announced on Thursday night during the awards banquet at the Williamsburg Tourism & Convention Center.

Kemnitz led the Blue Raiders to an 8-5 dual mark this season, including a 6-1 record against Mid-South Conference competition. She also guided Lindsey Wilson to a win in the season-opening LWC Fall Frenzy and a second-place finish at the Brenau (GA) Invitational.

Kemnitz - who was selected by a vote of her peers - becomes the inaugural recipient of the award following swimming becoming an official conference sport at the beginning of the 2014-15 season.

Campbellsville's (KY) Casey Smith is the MSC Women's Swimming Coach of the Year.

In addition to the coach of the year awards, the MSC Champions of Character and academic awards were also handed out on Thursday night. All-conference awards are based on this weekend's competition and will be distributed during the event.

Lindsey Wilson's Tolga Dogruyol, Iker Larzabal, Ryan Leamy and Shelby Stevenson were among the nine men's student-athletes across the conference to receive academic honors. Susan Herrington, Paige Lewis, Kelsey Marshall, Natalie Miller, Elena Nikolaeva, Lily Pearson and Sarah Wood were among the 20 women's student-athletes in the MSC to receive the honor.
