NWCA 2021 NAIA Women’s Scholar All-America Awards


Manheim, PA – On Wednesday, the National Wrestling Coaches Association announced the 2021 Scholar All-America teams and individual honorees for the NAIA Women. Awards went to 48 individuals representing nine institutions.

University of the Cumberlands took the team race with a 3.538 team GPA followed closely by Runners Up Indiana Tech (3.513) and Third Place Life University (3.509). Rounding out the Top Five was #4 Baker University (3.332) and #5 Missouri Baptist University (3.224)

“Spring is always an exciting time as we get to continue honoring student-athletes following the season with our Scholar All-American Awards,” said NWCA Executive Director Mike Moyer. “Competitive success is something our athletes should strive for, but of equal or greater importance is their academic performance.  Today we honor our outstanding list of scholars from the NAIA Women’s division for their commitment to excellence in the classroom. I have no doubt that these young athletes will go on to do great things in any area they choose to ply their trade.”

This year’s individual awards include two NAIA National Champions, five finalists, and 18 NAIA All-Americans.  Life University led all teams with nine Scholar All-Americans, while Indiana Tech and the University of the Cumberlands each had seven individuals receiving honors.
