WC’s Glish earns academic all-district honors

Wilmington College women’s swimming senior Samantha Glish was recognized for her academic and athletic accomplishments by earning College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) Google Cloud Academic All-District honors.

A mathematics and business administration double major, Glish finished her collegiate career with a perfect 4.0 grade point average (GPA), just one of three Fightin’ Quaker seniors to achieve a perfect GPA.

She was a four-year math and peer tutor as well as earning Academic All-Ohio Athletic Conference (OAC) honors every year. The Louisville, Ky., native is also a member of Omicron Delta Kappa, Omicron Delta Epsilon and Green Key Honor Societies.

In the water, Glish is a 22-time OAC finalist as well as the Wilmington College record holder in seven events. At the 2018 OAC Championships, Glish won the 50-freestyle, finished runner-up in the 100-freestyle and took fourth place in the 100-fly. She leaves the program as the highest female point scorer in school history.

With the Academic All-District honors, Glish moves on to the national ballot where she has a chance to earn the prestigious Academic All-American honors.
