Francis Marion athletes named to Peach Belt Conference Honor Roll

The Peach Belt Conference announced that a record-breaking 1,384 student-athletes have been named to the 22nd-annual Presidential Honor Roll. The list includes 89 student-athletes from Francis Marion University. FMU placed student-athletes on the honor roll from each of its 12 sponsored sports. The Presidential Honor Roll recognizes all student-athletes at PBC institutions who had a grade point average of 3.00 or higher, based on a 4.00 scale, for the 2012-13 academic year. The honor roll is divided into four groups: Presidential Scholars (GPA of 3.00 to 3.24), Bronze Scholars (3.25 to 3.49), Silver Scholars (3.50 to 3.74), and Gold Scholars (3.75 to 4.00). “These honorees demonstrate how higher education and athletics, or other extracurricular activities, can both succeed working hand-in-hand,” said FMU director of athletics Murray Hartzler. “We strive to show excellence both on the playing field and in the classroom, and this success in turn reflects back to the players, our faculty and administration, and our fans.” Among the FMU athletes named to the honor roll were 10 who receive this recognition for the fourth time: baseball outfielder Dalton Gress (Aiken), men’s cross country runner Ian Wallace (Fort Mill,), golfers Sebastian Backlund (Bollebygd, Sweden) and Travis Gantt (Greenwood), women’s soccer player Kelly Kady (Huntingtown, MD), softball players Tristan Faile (Lancaster) and Olivia Ferguson (Roanoke, VA), volleyball player Liz Drewry (Richmond, VA), and women’s tennis players Mona Blauen (Cologne, Germany) and Kerry Hall (Durbin, South Africa).
