Glenwood’s Tuttle earns Mountain West All-Academic honors

A 2016 graduate of Glenwood Springs High School, Air Force cadet Jessica Tuttle, a swimmer at the military academy, earned spring Mountain West Conference All-Academic honors in her first year as a collegiate athlete.

Tuttle, majoring in Behavioral Science/Pre-Med, joins 11 other members of the swimming and diving team for the Falcons, who saw 75 student-athletes earn the Mountain West All-Academic honors, which is the third-most in program history for the spring semester since the Falcons joined the MWC in 1999-2000.

To be eligible for Mountain West All-Academic selection, student-athletes must have completed at least one academic term at the member institution while maintaining a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or better, and be a starter or significant contributor on their athletic team.

While at Glenwood Springs, Tuttle, the daughter of Jeff and Cathy Tuttle of Glenwood, was a two-year varsity letter winner for the Demons, swimming in her freshman and senior years, earning the principal’s honor roll along the way.

Tuttle holds the school record in the 100 fly and 200 individual medley, and also competed for Damon Garrison and Neil Romney at Team Sopris Swimming.

With the Barracudas, Tuttle holds program records in the 100 free, 200 back, 200 breast, 100 fly, 200 fly, 200 individual medley and 400 individual medley.

As a member of the Demons during high school, Tuttle played a big part in Glenwood winning two conference titles.
