Schluntz named NCAA Woman of the Year

Arizona swimmer Justine Schluntz was named the NCAA Woman of the year last night at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis. Schluntz was the 20th recipient of the award, and fourth from the UA.

The award is given to the female student-athlete that has completed her eligibility, demonstrated academic and athletic excellence while also demonstrating extraordinary community service and leadership.

Schluntz’s accolades in the pool are unmatched. Over the course of her career she was a five-time NCAA National Champion, a 16-time NCAA All-American and a three-time member of the Pac-10 All-Academic First Team.

Out of the pool, Schluntz has volunteered for Big Brothers/Big Sisters and Casa de los Niños among other things. She is currently studying as a Rhodes Scholar in England.
