ORLANDO, Fla. (UCFKnights.com) -
Seven Knights were among the more than 5,000 softball student-athletes from across seven different divisions that were tabbed as 2015-16 NFCA All-America Scholar-Athletes.

The award, which is submitted by member coaches, is handed out to players who achieved a 3.50 grade point average or higher during the 2015-16 academic year.

Six Knights earned the laurel for the second consecutive year, while all seven also earned American Athletic Conference All-Academic distinction.

Senior Samantha McCloskey, who garnered First Team All-AAC honors in 2016, earned a 4.0 GPA during the spring semester.

The Black and Gold continue fall action on Friday at 6 p.m., hosting Florida Tech at the UCF Softball Complex.
