    ST. LOUIS - Seven Southern Illinois women's swimming and diving athletes earned spots on the Missouri Valley Conference Scholar-Athlete team, the conference announced Monday. Jessica Anderson was one of two athletes recognized for maintaining a perfect 4.0 GPA.

    Also earning spots on the team were Kristin Geppert, Kristy Hinkle, Melissa Larocque, Luisa Silveira and Jill Weckbach.

    Scholar-Athlete honors require athletes to have completed at least one year and maintain either a 3.2 GPA and obtain all-conference honors, achieve a 3.5 GPA and finish top sixteen in an individual event at the conference championships, or maintain a 3.8 GPA and participate in the MVC championship.

    Forty-two student-athletes qualified for the Valley 2012 Swimming and Diving Scholar-Athlete team, with two student-athletes averaging a perfect 4.0 GPA and fourteen student-athletes above an impressive 3.8 GPA.
