Eight Buena Vista softball players have been recognized by the National Fastpitch Coaches Association (NFCA) for their efforts in the classroom, as they are among thousands of student-athletes named Scholar All-Americans for the 2011-12 season.
To be eligible, the individual has to have her name submitted by her coach and maintain a 3.50 GPA or higher during the 2011-12 academic year.
