SPIA alumna Shannon Vreeland received an NCAA Today’s Top 10 Award, which recognizes student-athletes for their successes in academics, athletics and in the community. Vreeland, a native of Overland Park, Kansas, helped the Lady Bulldogs win their second straight NCAA title and their fifth consecutive SEC championship last season. A 19-time All-American, Vreeland swam on four NCAA-winning relays during her career: the 800-yard freestyle relays in 2011, 2012 and 2013, and the 400-yard freestyle relay in 2013. She also earned two individual and five relay titles during her career at the SECs. Vreeland helped the 800-yard freestyle relay squad set the American record, while the 400- and 800-yard freestyle relays eclipsed the U.S. Open and NCAA marks.
