SPARTANBURG, S.C. (Jan. 15, 2020) – The Southern Conference announced its Fall Academic All-Conference Team on Wednesday afternoon, as 36 ETSU student-athletes earned the academic honors for 2019.
The Bucs ranked third among SoCon schools with the 36 honorees, as Mercer led the way with 59, followed by Chattanooga (41) and then the Blue & Gold. A total of 348 student-athletes were recognized for the fall semester.
Women’s soccer and men’s cross country led the charge for the Bucs with eight selections each, followed by seven honorees from men’s soccer and six from football. Women’s cross country (4) and volleyball (3) round out the count for ETSU.
