ETSU athletes named to A-Sun All-Academic teams

Monday, July 01, 2013

JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (July 1, 2013) – The Atlantic Sun Conference announced its 2012-13 All-Academic honors on Monday, and the East Tennessee State University Department of Intercollegiate Athletics made a strong showing once again.

In all, 169 Buccaneers earned A-Sun All-Academic honors, with 15 of those student-athletes finishing the year with a perfect 4.0 grade point average.

“First and foremost, we are here to encourage scholastic success,” said ETSU Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Dr. Richard Sander. “We take pride in these student-athletes and their accomplishments in the classroom, and we wish them continued success.”

As a conference, more than 64 percent of the student-athletes in the A-Sun posted a 3.0 grade point average or better during the 2012-13 competition season, including 73 percent of Stetson University student-athletes as the Hatters claim their first A-Sun Academic title.

A  total of 114 student-athletes received their undergraduate degrees while maintaining a perfect 4.0 GPA during the 2012-13 academic year. This outstanding group includes several sport-specific Scholar-Athlete of the Year winners: Mercer's Will Betts (Men's Soccer); Lipscomb's two-time winner Tessa Hoefle (Women's Cross Country); Kennesaw State's Ben Greene (Men's Golf); Jacksonville's Alexandra Hoffman (Women's Lacrosse); and ETSU's Lyn Yee Choo (Women's Tennis).

Other A-Sun First-Team All-Conference selections with perfect GPAs include: Jacksonville's Alexandra Lee (Women's Soccer), Freshman of the Year Sammie Strausbaugh (Volleyball) and Most OUtstanding Field Performer Charlene Charles (Women's Track & Field); Mercer's MacKenzie Woody (Softball); ETSU's Giulia Andreazza (Women's Tennis); North Florida's Simona Weymar (Women's Tennis), and KSU's Virginie Stein (Women's Tennis).

Another 48 student-athletes claimed Commissioner Scholar recognition for landing between the 3.6 and 3.79 GPA status upon graduation, along with meeting the same requirements as Presidential Scholar recipients. Conference Scholar recognition was bestowed on another 497 individuals for their sustained achievement over at least two years, paired with a 3.4 cumulative GPA or better.

The A-Sun recognized 1,500 student-athletes as All-Academic selections for their work in the classroom by reaching the 3.0 mark, also up from last year by 84. Nearly a quarter of the 53 Presidential Scholars came from Jacksonville (13), Stetson (15) accounted for nearly a third of the Commissioner's Scholars and Lipscomb's total of 83 Conference Scholars topped the A-Sun.
