Thursday, January 27, 2011

The Atlantic Sun Conference has added two new levels of recognition for student-athletes who have excelled on the field or court and in the classroom.

Four Lipscomb student-athletes earned the President’s Scholar Award, the most from any one school in the conference. Fifteen students were honored overall.

Three Lipscomb student-athletes were presented with the Commissioner’s Scholar Award. Eleven A-Sun student-athletes earned the designation.

Earning the President’s Scholar designation were Lacey Cross (women’s soccer), Jeffrey Hoover (men’s cross country), Alex Kelly (volleyball) and Jenny Randolph (women’s cross country). Cross and Hoover both posted 3.94 GPAs. Kelly and Randolph each have 3.89 GPAs.

To earn this designation student-athletes must have completed their final year of eligibility, maintained a cumulative 3.8 or above grade point average and completed a minimum of 48 credit hours.

Kathryn Spellman (women’s soccer), Stefine “Jake” Pease (volleyball) and Caitlin Anderson (women’s cross country) earned the Commissioner’s Scholar Award.

Spellman’s GPA is 3.77. Pease has a 3.69 and Anderson a 3.62.

Commissioner’s Scholars must have completed their final year of eligibility, earned a cumulative GPA between 3.66 and 3.799 and completed a minimum of 48 credit hours.

Fall A-Sun All-Academic Teams have also been named. A student-athlete must have a 3.0 or higher GPA during the semester of competition. Lipscomb women’s soccer had the top grade percentage in that sport.
