ST. BONAVENTURE, N.Y. – St. Bonaventure rising sophomore Rachel Kimmel has earned Scholar All-America Honors from the College Swimming and Diving Coaches Association (CSCAA) for her success both in the classroom and the pool.
The award recognizes students that have achieved a grade point average of 3.50 or higher and competed at their respective NCAA/NAIA/NJCAA Swimming and Diving Championships.
A native of Fort Loudon, Pa., Kimmel had a freshman campaign to remember. She swam to a pair of bronze medals while breaking school records in the 100 and 200-breaststroke at the Atlantic 10 Championship meet.
Kimmel is a journalism/mass communication major and was a member of the Atlantic 10 Commissioner's Honor Roll this past year with a 3.97 cumulative GPA.
2019 marks the second consecutive year that a Bona swimmer has been named a Scholar All-American with Devon McFadden '18 earning honors last year.
