Southeastern Student-Athletes Earn GAC Academic Honors

A total of 33 Southeastern student-athletes have been honored following the 2012-13 season of competition in the Great American Conference, as the league office announced its Academic All-Conference honors.

Athletes must maintain a cumulative 3.30 GPA and be at least a sophomore to earn the honor.

Softball led the charge with a total of 10 selections, followed by football with seven and volleyball with four.

Softball was also tied for the most softball honorees among the conference schools.

Eight of SE's 10 sports were represented, with seven of those having multiple honorees.

"Division II is all about the balance of academic and athletic pursuits," GAC Commissioner Will Prewitt said. "I congratulate all of these student-athletes for excelling in the classroom while competing and practicing hard on the field of play."

GAC football student-athletes garnered the most All-Academic selections, 80, followed by 69 from baseball and 60 in softball. A total of 470 student-athletes across the league's 11 schools earned all-acedemic honors.
