Fayetteville, N.C. - The USA South Athletic Conference has released its 2017-2018 Academic All-Conference Team, and N.C. Wesleyan is pleased to announce that a 108 Battling Bishops have garnered recognition! Wesleyan's honorees were among 1,446 student-athletes earning accolades across the league.
A student-athlete must have earned a 3.30 GPA in each of the two semesters of a given year to be eligible. This is an increase from a 3.0 GPA which had been the minimum requirement. Any student-athlete participating at any Conference institution is eligible, thus the participant does not have to compete in a Conference-sponsored sport. Additionally, beginning with this academic year, any student-athlete earning a 3.9 GPA or above earned the All-Academic honor "With Distinction" noted by an asterisk. To view the entire team, please visit http://usasouth.net/awardsHonors/All-Academic1718.pdf.
The list of student-athletes honored from North Carolina Wesleyan follows. The Department of Athletics offers congratulations to all 108 of these Battling Bishops on a job well done both athletically and academically!
