LWC Athletics boasts 20 NAIA Scholar Teams in 2018-19
By Chris Wells
Twenty Lindsey Wilson College athletic programs earned 2018-19 NAIA Scholar-Team honors, NAIA officials announced on Monday.
The 20 teams are a department record eclipsing the 16 scholar teams in 2013-14.
Since the inception of the award in 2006-07, 155 Lindsey Wilson teams have earned the national honor. Lindsey Wilson has had at least 10 NAIA Scholar Teams each of the last 10 years.
To be considered for the NAIA Scholar-Team award, a team must have a minimum 3.0 grade-point average as defined by the institution. The team grade point average includes all student-athletes on the eligibility certificate.
Two Lindsey Wilson teams not associated with the NAIA also accomplished the feat giving the LWC athletics department 22 teams with at least a 3.0 GPA for the 2018-19 academic year.
Women's soccer produced the top Lindsey Wilson grade point average in 2018-19. The women's soccer program produced a 3.77 GPA for the academic year. It marks the sixth time in the last eight seasons and seventh time overall the women's soccer program has boasted the highest team GPA at Lindsey Wilson.
Women's swimming produced a 3.65 team GPA while volleyball earned a 3.63 team GPA to finish just behind women's soccer.
Other Lindsey Wilson NAIA Scholar Teams include women's golf (3.57), women's tennis (3.41), men's tennis (3.39), men's golf (3.35), men's swimming (3.35), women's bowling (3.30), men's cross country (3.25), softball (3.23), women's basketball (3.18), women's cross country (3.18), wrestling (3.15), men's outdoor track & field (3.10), men's indoor track & field (3.09), women's indoor track & field (3.07), women's outdoor track & field (3.07), men's soccer (3.08), and cheerleading (3.02).
Archery (3.05) and cycling (3.23) -- to two Lindsey Wilson non-NAIA teams -- also achieved a team GPA of 3.0.
A total of 1,939 total NAIA teams earned the distinction during 2018-19.
