ASU Student-Athletes Honored
AUGUSTA, Ga. --
For the fifth consecutive year, Augusta State has increased its
representation on the Peach Belt Conference’s Presidential
Honor Roll, PBC commissioner Dave Brunk announced recently. In all,
a PBC-record 1,080 student-athletes from the league’s 13
member institutions were cited for their academic excellence.
ASU had 78 student-athletes named to the 2010 PBC Presidential Honor Roll, up from 72 in 2009, 69 in 2008, 56 in 2007 and 49 in 2006. The Presidential Honor Roll recognizes all student-athletes at PBC institutions who had a GPA of 3.0 or higher for the academic year.
For the third straight year, the honor roll is divided into four groups: Presidential Scholars, Bronze Scholars, Silver Scholars and Gold Scholars. All student-athletes with a GPA of 3.00 to 3.24 are Presidential Scholars while Bronze Scholars are 3.25 to 3.49; Silver 3.50 to 3.74 and the Gold Scholars are those with a 3.75 to 4.00 GPA.
“It’s certainly rewarding to see this many student-athletes not only meet their athletic goals, but their academic goals as well,” said ASU Director of Athletics Clint Bryant. “We’re constantly striving to increase our academic achievement and to find new ways to prepare and motivate our student-athletes to perform at their very best in the classroom as well as in athletic competition.”
