MINNEAPOLIS — Augsburg University wrestling student-athlete Victor Gliva (SR, Farmington, Minn.) was named as one of 42 winter student-athletes selected nationwide to receive the prestigious $10,000 NCAA Postgraduate Scholarship, honoring achievements as both a scholar and an athlete.
The award is the latest in a decorated career for Gliva, who became Augsburg’s first-ever student-athlete to win the NCAA Elite 90 award in all three years he was eligible for the honor. The NCAA Elite 90 award is given to the student-athlete at the NCAA championship with the highest GPA. Only three NCAA Division III student-athletes have ever won the award three times in a career and only 13 student-athletes have done so across all three NCAA Divisions. Academically, Gliva was also a four-time NWCA Division III Scholar All-American as well as earning CoSIDA Academic All-America and Academic All-District honors.
