HIGH POINT, N.C. - Conference Carolinas was represented by five student-athletes from four sports on the 2017 Academic All-District At-Large Team that the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) announced today.
Limestone College led the way with three Saints making the list, men's volleyball player Dylan Lavner, women's golfer Eleonor Skoog and women's tennis player Gabriela van Ooststroom.
