28 UTC Athletes Earn All-Southern Conference Academic Team

Tuesday, December 17, 2013

The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga athletics program capped off a strong first half to the 2013-14 school year with 28 student-athletes making the Fall Academic All-Southern Conference Team.  It is the second-most Mocs on the fall squad in school history, trailing only the 36 that received the honor in 2010. 

To be eligible for the academic all-conference team, student-athletes must carry at least a 3.3 cumulative grade-point-average entering the fall season and compete in at least one-half of their teams’ competitions. In addition, the student-athletes must have successfully completed at least 24 credit hours in the previous two semesters.

Three Mocs maintained a 4.0 cumulative g.p.a., including soccer’s Skylar Brewer and Clare Latham and cross country’s Patrick O'Brien.  Soccer and men’s cross country led the way with eight selections each, followed by five from football, four from volleyball and three from the women’s cross country team. 

Some notable Mocs on the team include football 2013 SoCon Defensive Player of the Year Davis Tull, who has a 3.52 g.p.a. as a Health & Human Performance major.  2013 SoCon Cross Country Runner of the Year Teghan Henderson also made the list with a 3.81 g.p.a.  Men’s cross country runners Mark Cole (3.86 – Biochemistry) and Lucas Cotter (3.80 – M.B.A.) were All-SoCon performers who also made the all-academic team.
