Swimming’s Scheck Earns Second All-Academic Honors
Senior Diver Selected To Six-Member Team
IRVING, Texas – The Conference USA Championship meet is still a day away, but senior diver Samantha Scheck has already collected the first award of the week for the North Texas swimming team. Scheck was one of six student-athletes selected to the 2017 C-USA InTouch Credit Union All-Academic Team, announced by the conference office on Tuesday.
This marks the second-straight year Scheck was named to the all-academic team.
“I am very proud of Sam's achievements both in the classroom and off the boards,” interim head coach Brittany Roth said. “Sam has consistently helped to push our program forward in our team goals, and her work ethic in her studies has helped to create a culture of academic achievement we strive for all of our student-athletes to achieve.”
Scheck has been one of the top divers for North Texas this season, posting a season-best score of 236.24 on the one-meter board in a victory over TCU and sweeping the diving events at the Little Rock Invitational, including a season-best score of 249.00 on the three-meter board.
She is the fifth-best performer is school history on the one-meter board with a score of 263.93.
Off the diving board, Scheck has been named to the C-USA Commissioner's List Honor Roll and a Commissioner's Academic Medal recipient in 2016, has made the President’s List in five semesters and was on the Dean’s List for two semesters.
A Conroe, Texas, native, Scheck maintains a grade-point average of 3.93 as a kinesiology student.
“Sam is a leader and one of our five graduating seniors,” Roth added. “Her commitment to her diving and to her studies has led her to this success. We are really blessed to have her as part of our team.”
To be eligible for selection on the team, student-athletes must have achieved a 3.2 cumulative grade point average and serve as a key competitor of their respective teams.
