Seven members of the Canisius College softball program were named to the 2012 National Fastpitch Coaches Association (NFCA) All-America Scholar-Athlete Team, the association announced today. The 2012 NFCA scholar-athlete teams recognize thousands of student-athletes representing more than 600 academic institutions at the NCAA Division I, II, III levels, the NAIA level and junior college.

Juniors Jen Consaul and Valorie Nappo along with sophomore Michelle DelPrince were recognized by the NFCA for their work in the classroom, as were former Griffs Lauren Chris, Lizzy Gatto, Katie Lancellotti and Caroline Main.

The NCFA honors student-athletes who are nominated by a member coach. To be eligible, student-athletes must achieve a 3.50 grade point average or higher (on a 4.0 scale) during the 2011-12 academic year.  This honor is the second component of the NFCA academic award program.  In late October the squads with the highest GPAs in each membership category were recognized as 2012 NFCA Top Ten All-Academic Teams.
