RICHMOND, Va. - Junior Old Dominion wrestling standout James Nicholson was one of five student-athletes honored by the Colonial Athletic Association as recipients of the CAA Scholar-Athlete Award for the winter sports season. All five student-athletes excelled both athletically and academically during the 2009-10 year.

The conference honors one Scholar-Athlete in each of its 22 championship sports. Nominees for the award must be a starter or important reserve on their team and must have a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.25. The winners were selected by a vote of the sports information directors at each CAA institution.

Nicholson (Des Moines, Iowa) is majoring in finance and minoring in marketing at ODU. The Dean's List student was a member of the NWCA All-Academic team in 2009 and is a three-time recipient of the CAA Commissioner's Academic Award.

On the mat, Nicholson compiled a sparkling 32-3 overall record this season and was the CAA Champion at 125-pounds for the third year in a row. The 2007-08 All American was ranked seventh nationally and was the #7 seed at the 2010 NCAA Championship, where he posted a 2-2 record.

Other student-athletes earning Scholar-Athlete of the Year honors for their sports were Northeastern senior Baptiste Bataille in men's basketball, George Mason junior Angelee LaTouche in women's basketball, George Mason graduate student Eric Knight in men's swimming and diving and UNC Wilmington senior Caitlin Kirsteier in women's swimming and diving.
