Two swimming and diving student-athletes represented Manchester University on the 2017 Ohio Athletic Conference winter all-academic teams released Tuesday, March 14.
Sophomore Nathan Koch (Columbia City, Ind.) earned the award for the men’s program, while sophomore Jamie McBride (Elkhart, Ind.) did so for the women’s team. They were the third and fourth honorees in the brief two-year history of the Black and Gold being a part of the OAC to gain such distinction.
In order to earn all-academic standing in the Ohio Athletic Conference, individuals must be a sophomore or higher in class standing, maintain varsity status and have a cumulative grade-point-average of at least 3.50.
