Six Lee Athletes Named To Fall All-Academic Teams

Thursday, January 17, 2019
Lee University had six athletes land spots on the Gulf South Conference Fall All-Academic Teams the league office announced on Thursday afternoon.

Lady Flames cross country senior Amy Carpenter earned the All-Academic honor for the third straight season as she posted a 3.94 GPA as a mathematics major while earning All-South Region and All-GSC First Team distinction. Charlee Boxall joined Carpenter on the squad as she was also an all-region and all-conference selection while sporting a 3.66 GPA as a nursing major.

All-American women's soccer senior Mia Hollingsworth and sophomore all-region standout Kelsey Yoder earned spots on the women's soccer team.
Hollingsworth has a 3.74 GPA as she prepares to graduate in the spring with a degree in psychology. Yoder has a perfect 4.00 GPA as a nursing major, one of the more strenuous degrees at Lee.

Rounding out the six selections are men's soccer senior Jake Brown and junior Daniel Hrenko. Brown graduated in December with a degree in accounting and carried 3.73 GPA. The Nashville native was an All-GSC defender the last two seasons and earns his second straight All-Academic Team honor. Hrenko was superb in goal for the Flames this season and was named All-South Region and First Team All-GSC. Hrenko is studying Business Administration and is has a 3.30 GPA.

Student-athletes must be at least a sophomore academically and carry a 3.30 or better cumulative GPA. Athletic achievements are also factored into the selection. Transfer students and freshmen are not eligible for the All-Academic teams. Voting is done by the GSC Athletic Communications Directors.

The Flames landed 71 athletes on the GSC Honor Roll this fall. Highlighting the honor roll were 22 women's soccer players and all 17 volleyball players. Athletes are eligible for the honor if they maintain a 3.00 cumulative GPA.
