DAVIS, Calif. -- Accolades for the 2013-14 UC Davis women's swimming and diving team continued to roll in as the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation named 14 Aggies to its annual All-Academic Team on Thursday afternoon.
To qualify, each student-athlete had to maintain a 3.00 cumulative grade point average, be at least a sophomore academically, complete one full academic year at the institution prior to the season for which the award is being received, and compete in at least 50 percent of the institution's competitions.
Five seniors, seven juniors, and two sophomores, represent UC Davis on the honor roll, ranking the Aggies third among the league's eight teams behind Hawai'i (16) and Loyola Marymount (15).
Seniors Sabrina Cochrane, Liliana Alvarez, Sarah Winters, and Jen Meyer, were honored by the MPSF for their efforts in the classroom for the third time in their careers, while juniors Shannon Stewart, Samantha Rados, and Marilyn Carey, along with senior Maya Sprinsock, each earned their second career awards from the conference office.
