99 FMU Student-Athletes Named to PBC Presidential Honor Roll

AUGUSTA, GA -- The Peach Belt Conference announced that a record 1,449 student-athletes have been named to the 23rd-annual Presidential Honor Roll.  The list includes 99 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 2013-14 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).

“Once again, our student-athletes have shined – both in the playing arena and in the classroom,” said FMU director of athletics Murray Hartzler.  “All of these student-athletes have demonstrated that with hard work and time management, success can be achieved in both areas simultaneously.  These honors reflect positively on our players, faculty, administration, and fans.”

Among the FMU athletes named to the honor roll were six who receive this recognition for the fourth time: women’s soccer players Yasmin Bunter (Fleet, England) and Kristina Marra (Toronto, Ontario, Canada), women’s cross country runner London Barnhill (Hemingway, SC), softball outfielder Olivia Zielinski (Greenville, SC), and volleyball players Megan Mooney (Lake Oswego, OR) and Paige Perreault (Kankakee, IL).  Baseball outfielder Dalton Gress (Aiken, SC) is the first Patriot to receive the honor five times as he was redshirted during his true freshman year.

Earlier this year, 113 student-athletes at Francis Marion were named to the university’s Swamp Fox Athletic-Academic Honor Roll for the 2013 fall semester and 102 for the 2014 spring semester.
