Individual Scholar All-American honors were awarded to varsity athletes who competed in the National Championship and maintained a GPA of 3.5 or better throughout the fall semester of competition. Honorable mention was awarded to varsity athletes who competed in at least one 2018 Women’s Collegiate Triathlon Regional Qualifier, but not the National Championships, and maintained a GPA of 3.5 or better throughout the 2018 fall semester of competition.
