Led by five first-team selections, eight total student-athletes from the NCAC were named to the 2016-17 CoSIDA Academic All-America® Division III At-Large Team, it was announced on Tuesday, June 6. 

Among the 45 student-athletes of each gender selected to the Division III Academic All-America® At-Large teams, eight men and 12 women carry 4.0 or better grade-point averages. The 15 members of the men’s at-large first team carry an average G.P.A. of 3.83, while the 15 members of the women’s at-large team carry an average G.P.A. of 3.87. 

Twenty men and 12 women are repeat CoSIDA Academic All-America® selections. Three men and one woman earned their third straight CoSIDA Academic All-America® selections. 

Highlighting the list of first-team honorees were a pair of three-time honorees, including Denison senior women's swimmer Campbell Costley (Glencoe, IL/New Trier) and Kenyon senior men's swimmer Trevor Manz (Eau Claire, WI/Eau Claire). Costley was the lone three-time CoSIDA Academic All-America® honoree on the women's side, earning first-team laurels in 2016 and 2017, to go along with a second-team distinction in 2015. Manz was one of two male athletes to land on the Academic At-Large All-America® Team for the third year in a row, collecting first-team honors in each of the last two years, while also landing on the second team in 2015.

Joining Costley on the women's first team was DU senior swimmer Carolyn Kane (Deephaven, MN/Minnetonka) and Kenyon junior swimmer Julia Wilson (Bethesda, MD/Sidwell Friends), while Kenyon senior Ellie Crawford (Las Vegas, NV/Meadows School) rounded out the list of NCAC women's athletes on the squad as a second-team selection.
