Six members of the 2013 Wright State softball team have been named All-America Scholar-Athletes by the National Fastpitch Coaches Association.
Recognized by the NFCA are current senior Kacie Rapshus, juniors Angie Clark and Jess Gorman and sophomore Taylor Knore along with graduating seniors Lindsay Barrett and Colleen Schneider.
"It’s a proud moment for the entire program when players are recognized for excellence in the classroom," said WSU head coach Lynn Curylo. "I can only hope that this honor motivates the rest of our team to be scholar-athletes next season."
Over the last three years, Wright State has had eight different players named All-America Scholar-Athlete and has had 17 selections overall. Barrett, Rapshus and Schneider have been recognized in each of those three years while Clark has been named twice.
To qualify, a student-athlete must have a 3.5 grade point average or higher for the academic year.
Wright State continues its fall schedule on Sunday, September 29, by hosting Dayton at noon and Kentucky at 2:00 at the WSU Softball Field. Next weekend, the Raiders will take part in the Ohio Collegiate Charity Classic at Beekman Park in Columbus. WSU faces Miami (10:00) and Capital (12:15) on Saturday, October 5, followed by Toledo (10:30) and Ohio State (12:45) on Sunday, October 6.
