    EVANSTON, Ill. -- Twelve Northwestern swimmers have earned Scholar All-America awards from the College Swimming Coaches Association of America (CSCAA) for the 2011-12 season, the organization announced Friday, July 6.

    From the women's side, Taylor Reynolds (St. Louis, Mo./Webster Groves) and Jenny Wilson (Bethesda, Md./Sidwell Friends School) were named CSCAA Scholar All-Americans while Meghan Cavanaugh (Anchorage, Alaska/East Anchorage), Lauren Clifford (Pollock Pines, Calif./El Dorado), Jacquie Godbe (Rapid City, S.D./Stevens), Meredith King (Louisville, Ky./duPont Manual), Katie McCullough (Grand Rapids, Mich./Forest Hills Central), Kathleen Patterson (Naperville, Ill./Neuqua Valley) and Becca Soderholm (Madison, Wis./Madison East) all earned honorable mention nods.

    Swimmers and divers reach Scholar All-America status by recording a 3.5 GPA or above and also qualifying for their national championship meet. Student-athletes are named honorable mention honorees if they record an NCAA `B' provisional qualifying time but do not gain admittance to the NCAA meet.
