HIGH POINT, N.C.Will Hardin and Kaci Thornton of the Lees-McRae College swimming programs were recognized Tuesday by being named to the Academic All-Conference team by the league office. Overall, there were 30 student-athletes that received this honor.

The Conference Carolinas Academic All-Conference teams are comprised of junior and senior student-athletes who have competed in a conference-sponsored sport and maintained a cumulative grade point average of 3.25 or higher on a 4.0 scale in all work completed at their member institution. The GPA is calculated based on the student-athlete's cumulative average through the previous semester and each student-athlete must have attended their member institution for at least one academic year.

Hardin, Thornton and the rest of the Bobcats will be back in action February 6-9 when they compete at the Conference Carolinas/Bluegrass Mountain Conference Championships. The meet will take place at the Mecklenburg County Aquatic Center in Charlotte, North Carolina.
