McIntyre Earns Another Academic Honor
The Moccasins' Anna McIntyre has added another academic honor to her list of accomplishments this season. She is a second-team selection on the Capital One Division II Academic All-America At-Large Team as selected by the College Sports Information Directors of America. She has a 3.95 grade point average and is majoring in biology (pre-dentistry).
The women's at-large team consists of student-athletes competing in swimming, bowling, crew, fencing, field hockey, golf, gymnastics, ice hockey, lacrosse, rifle, skiing, tennis and water polo.
A junior from Kansas City, Mo., McIntyre helped the Moccasins place 10th at this season's Division II Championship and earned the NCAA Elite 89 Award, which goes to the student-athlete with the highest GPA at an NCAA championship event.
As a member of the 200-yard freestyle relay team, McIntyre earned All-American honors for the third year in a row. She helped the Moccasins place eighth in that event at the national finals after they'd set a meet record in winning it at the Sunshine State Conference championship. McIntyre was also part of the 200-yard freestyle relay team that set the school record at the 2011 national finals.
This year she was a co-recipient (with teammate Carlee McDonald) of the FSC Scholar-Athlete award for women's swimming after also winning the award the previous year.
