Washington College swimming student-athlete Julia Portmann (Palatine, Ill./William Fremd), who just completed her junior year at the school, has been named Overall Centennial Conference Co-Female Scholar-Athlete of the Year spanning all 12 of the conference’s women’s championship sports.

The Centennial Conference recognizes a Scholar-Athlete of the Year in each of its 24 championship sports to a junior or senior member of the All-Conference team with the highest cumulative grade point average. The overall Scholar-Athletes of the Year are presented to the student with the highest GPA among the 12 men and 12 women’s winners. Portmann shares the female honor with McDaniel volleyball student-athlete Taylor Baumann.

Portmann is a Biology and Environmental Science double major and has a 4.0 cumulative grade-point average. She earned All-Centennial Conference honorable mention in the 400 freestyle relay this year after picking up a silver medal in that event at the Centennial Conference Championships. She was named to the Centennial Conference Academic Honor Roll and the Academic All-Centennial team and was named the Centennial Conference Scholar-Athlete of the Year for women’s swimming back in March. Just last week, she was named to the Google Cloud Division III Academic All-District II Women’s At-Large Team, as selected by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA).

Portmann is the second Washington College student-athlete in three years to be named Overall Centennial Conference Scholar-Athlete of the Year. Former women’s lacrosse student-athlete Anna Inserra ’17 was named the inaugural female winner in 2016.
