LOUISVILLE, Ken. – Eight members of the University of the Sciences softball team have been named All-America Scholar-Athletes for the 2018 season by the National Fastpitch Coaches Association (NFCA).

In order to qualify for the honor, a student-athlete must have achieved a 3.5 grade point average (GPA) or better on a 4.0 scale. 

As a team, USciences ended the 2017-18 academic year with a 3.46 cumulative team GPA after recording a 3.60 team GPA in the Spring 2018 semester.
