SPARTANBURG, S.C. (January 17, 2017) – The Southern Conference on Tuesday announced its Fall Academic All-Conference team with 45 ETSU student-athletes receiving academic all-conference recognition.
Out of 318 total student-athletes, ETSU placed 45 on the all-conference academic list which was the second most behind Mercer’s 52. Of the 318, nine student-athletes maintained a perfect 4.0 cumulative grade point average including ETSU women’s cross country athlete, Macy Carrier.
Football led the way with 11 student-athletes followed by men’s and women’s cross country and women’s soccer with 10. Men’s soccer had eight student-athletes on the academic all-conference list with volleyball having six.
To be eligible for the academic all-conference team, student-athletes must carry at least a 3.3 cumulative grade-point average at the conclusion of the fall semester and were required to complete in at least one-half of their teams’ competitions during the recently concluded campaign. In addition, the student-athletes must have successfully completed at least three semesters at their institutions, making true freshman and first-year transfers ineligible for inclusion.
