Covenant Has 76 Named To USA South All-Academic Team

Monday, June 18, 2018

The USA South Athletic Conference announced its 2017-18 All-Academic honorees on Monday and 76 Covenant student-athletes were recognized.

Beginning in 2017-18, the USA South made adjustments to its criteria for the academic honor.

Students must now produce at least a 3.30 GPA in both the fall and spring semesters to qualify for the award, an increase from the previous 3.0 GPA requirement. Additionally, the conference added an Awarded with Distinction honor for an athlete with a GPA of 3.90 or better in both semesters.

Of the 76 Covenant honorees, 11 were awarded with distinction.

This academic year, 1,446 students from across the USA South earned Academic All-Conference honors.

Women's soccer and baseball led all Covenant programs with 13 honorees apiece. Women's track and field had nine students earn the honor, with seven on the women's cross country team. Men's soccer also placed seven on the list, while softball and women's basketball had six each. The softball program led Covenant with three honorees on the Awarded with Distinction list.

Complete List of Covenant athletes honors (*awarded with distinction; 3.9 GPA in both fall and spring semesters).
Those with an asterisk (*) beside their name earned at least a 3.90 GPA in each semester and collected honors “With Distinction”.
