Thursday, March 17, 2005

SPARTANBURG, S.C. (Mar. 17, 2005) - The Southern Conference today announced its TIAA-CREF Academic All-Conference teams for the winter of 2004-05. East Tennessee State University had eight student-athletes that received the honor.

ETSU track and field had the largest representation with six student-athletes earning the honor, three women and three men. Women's basketball added two to complete the list.

A total of 93 student-athletes, representing all 12 Southern Conference institutions were named to the team. The 93 student-athletes averaged a 3.52 grade point average on a 4.0 scale.

To be eligible, a student-athlete must have at least a 3.2 cumulative grade point average and have competed in at least one-half of their team's competitions during the winter.

This is the third year that the Southern Conference has named an All-Academic Team by season. The All-Academic teams are made possible by a grant from the Southern Conference's Education Partner, TIAA-CREF.

For over 85 years, TIAA/CREF has been helping millions of people working in the academic, medical and cultural fields plan for their retirement.  Our clear and long-held commitment to serve those who dedicate themselves to the benefit and enlightenment of others remains unchanged.

With their nonprofit heritage, TIAA-CREF has long subscribed to a different set of guiding principles. Principles directly influenced by the people we serve. With over $310 billion in combined assets as of June 30, 2004, their approach to investing goes beyond sound portfolio management. They are mindful of their social responsibilities. And they stay focused on the best interests of their participants. To learn more about TIAA-CREF, visit TIAA-CREF.org or call 800 842-2776.
