Colorado Springs, Colo. -- Ten University of Lynchburg senior student-athletes earned 2018-2019 College All-American Strength and Conditioning Athlete of the Year honors from the National Strength and Conditioning Association, the NSCA announced this month.

The dual-emphasis award is designed to recognize a student-athlete's success on the field of play along with his or her dedication to strength & conditioning and academic success, providing a model for all student-athletes in their athletic departments.

It is the first time the NSCA has honored a group of Lynchburg student-athletes with the award.

"These athletes have gone above and beyond to mold themselves and push their teams outside their comfort zones," Lynchburg director of strength & conditioning Ed Smith said. "Across all sports at Lynchburg, we have fantastic athletes, both on the field and in the weight room. Although this is our first group of athletes recognized, my hope is that I can nominate many more athletes to become an NSCA All-Americans. Congratulations to each athlete selected! Thank you for your dedication and commitment to becoming 1 percent better every day!"

Lynchburg's 2018-2019 honorees are:

Founded in 1978, the NSCA is dedicated to advancing the strength & conditioning profession around the world by collecting and disseminating research-based knowledge and its practical application through publishing, career services, and continuing education opportunities. The association also recognizes researches, educators, coaches, and student-athletes for their exceptional accomplishments in the field.
