State System Board of Governors Recognizes NCAA Champions from Five Universities

Georgia Wright WCU Swimming

The Board of Governors of Pennsylvania’s State System of Higher Education today recognized individual student-athletes including West Chester University’s Georgia Wright (Doncaster, England).

Only a sophomore, Wright already is a seven-time All-American. She repeated her championship performance of a year ago, again winning both the 1,000- and 1,650-yard freestyle events at the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division II Swimming and Diving Championships. She also was named the PSAC Swimmer of the Year for her season-long performance and outstanding swimmer at the PSAC Championships after winning four individual events and setting three conference records.

As a team, West Chester won its 12th straight conference title this year and interim head coach Steve Mazurek was named PSAC Coach of the Year.

The Board also recognized individual student-athletes from Clarion, Millersville, Slippery Rock universities, as well as the field hockey team from Shippensburg University, all of whom brought home NCAA Division II national championships in the last year.
