By Charles Balcom, Assistant Lindsey Wilson College Sports Information Director

COLUMBIA, KY (09 Mar 2017) - Lindsey Wilson men's and women's swimming head coach Alicia Kemnitz has been recognized as a 2016 American Swimming Coaches Association (ASCA) Coach of Excellence for 2016, the organization announced on Thursday.

The honor is reserved for coaches who guide their teams or individuals to a top-eight finish at a USA Swimming national-level meet or a USA collegiate championship.

Kemnitz led the women's program to a sixth-place finish and led the men to an eighth-place finish at the 2016 NAIA Swimming & Diving National Championships; both were program bests at the time. Ronni Borders became the first NAIA National Champion and second All-American in swim program history at the 2016 National Championships after winning the 100-yard breaststroke event.

This is the third-straight year and fourth time overall that Kemnitz has earned the honor.
