tv_sports 10dbRUSSELLVILLE — The University of Arkansas at Monticello earned 33 selections to the 2012-13 Great American Conference All-Academic Team, revealed by the league office.

   The GAC All-Academic Team honors student-athletes that have reached sophomore athletic and academic standing and have completed at least one full academic year at the nominating institution. In addition, the honorees must have at least a 3.30 cumulative grade point average on a 4.0 scale.

   The GAC honored a total 470 student-athletes for the 2012-13 cycle, covering all 11 member institutions. “Division II is all about the balance of academic and athletic pursuits,” GAC Commissioner Will Prewitt said.  “I congratulate all of these student-athletes for excelling in the classroom while competing and practicing hard on the field of play.”

   The softball team led all UAM squads with 11 GAC All-Academic selections. Baseball followed with eight, football ranked third with five and women’s basketball and volleyball tied for fourth with four selections each. Men’s cross country earned two selections and women’s cross country had one. There were UAM two student-athletes honored in more than one sport.

   “Having this many student-athletes performing so well in the classroom is a true testament of their hard work and dedication,” said UAM Director of Athletics Chris Ratcliff. “I am very proud of each of these young men and women for their accomplishments both on and off the field.”
