Greenwood, Ind. -- Two University of Lynchburg athletes were voted to the Google Cloud/College Sports Information Directors of America's Academic All-District women's track & field/cross country team, CoSIDA announced Tuesday afternoon.

Senior Samantha Schreiber (Gladys, Va.) and sophomore Kaitlyn Johnson (Spotsylvania, Va.) were two of the 11 representatives on the Division III District 5 team, which covers the American Southeast from Mississippi to Virginia.

The award makes the duo eligible for CoSIDA's Academic All-America honors, which will be released for track & field and cross country June 25. The Academic All-America program recognizes the nation's top student-athletes for their combined performances in athletics and in the classroom.

Schreiber, who graduated with degrees in nursing and health promotion carrying a 3.94 cumulative GPA, earned Academic All-District honors for the second year in a row.

She was All-Old Dominion Athletic Conference in cross country and the outdoor 10,000-meter run and 3,000-meter Steeplechase. She graduated as Lynchburg's record-holder in the outdoor 10,000m and indoor distance medley relay.

Her record-setting 10,000m run this year (37:41.4) won her all-region honors from the USTFCCCA. The senior was also the ODAC's Scholar-Athlete of the Year in cross country and outdoor track & field.

Johnson, a criminology major and member of the Westover Honors College with a 4.0 GPA, became Lynchburg's first-ever All-American in women's cross country, finishing 36th in a school-record time of 21:54.4. She also set Lynchburg's indoor records in the 3,000-meter (10:17.57) and 5,000-meter (17:55.74) runs and the outdoor 5,000m record (17:33.96), all of which won USTFCCCA all-region recognitions.

Lynchburg has seen women's track & field and cross country athletes named Academic All-America three times: Ashley Meyer in 2010 and Natalie Deacon in 2017 and 2018.
