34 UTC Athletes Named To Fall Academic All Southern Conference Team

Tuesday, January 16, 2018

The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga put 34 student-athletes on the Fall Academic All-Southern Conference team, the league office announced today.  This year's group of Mocs ties for the third-most on one fall academic squad, and is the best number since 34 in the fall of 2014. 

These individuals are honored for excelling in the classroom, as well as their performance on the field.  The fall team is made up of representatives from cross country, football, soccer and volleyball. 

To be eligible for the academic all-conference team, student-athletes must carry at least a 3.3 cumulative GPA at the conclusion of the fall semester, and were required to compete in at least one-half of their teams' competitions.

In addition, the student-athletes must have successfully completed at least three semesters at their institutions, making true freshmen and first-year transfers ineligible for inclusion.

The women's cross country team and volleyball teams both tied for the SoCon lead with seven honorees.  Women's soccer had 10 representatives, while the football team had six and four from the men's cross country team.   

A full list of UTC's honorees is available below.
