34 UTC Athletes Named To Fall Academic All Southern Conference Team

Tuesday, January 16, 2018

The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga put 34 student-athletes on the Fall Academic All-Southern Conference team, the league office announced today.  This year's group of Mocs ties for the third-most on one fall academic squad, and is the best number since 34 in the fall of 2014. 

These individuals are honored for excelling in the classroom, as well as their performance on the field.  The fall team is made up of representatives from cross country, football, soccer and volleyball.

 

To be eligible for the academic all-conference team, student-athletes must carry at least a 3.3 cumulative GPA at the conclusion of the fall semester, and were required to compete in at least one-half of their teams' competitions. In addition, the student-athletes must have successfully completed at least three semesters at their institutions, making true freshmen and first-year transfers ineligible for inclusion.

The women's cross country team and volleyball teams both tied for the SoCon lead with seven honorees.  Women's soccer had 10 representatives, while the football team had six and four from the men's cross country team.   

A full list of UTC's honorees is available below.

County Schools To Push Forward With Equity Effort; Magnet Schools To Get More Diversity With Lottery Change

The county schools will push forward with an equity effort that appeared to have been paused after board members Rhonda Thurman and Joe Smith in May said  they rejected the idea that county schools need to “racially and economically integrate.” An equity task force did not meet for several months and the schools did not move forward on hiring an outside consultant to help ...

Drink Up, Chattanooga

I attended the meeting to discuss the placement of the sewage treatment plant at the Cambridge Center in Ooltewah today. My problem with the meeting (aka) dog and pony show, is that the meeting started out with the agenda of the Ooltewah Community Council.  After living in this area for 45+ years I have never heard of this group.  I would like for someone to answer ...

Roy Exum: Dear Faux Pelini

It has been my experience that of all the tribes and herds of different people on earth, sports writers are among the funniest people of all. Oh, there isn’t anything real sexy about Villanova beating Georgetown or a baseball player hitting for the cycle. Now, if a player hits a single, double, triple and homer in that order, that’s “a natural cycle,” and that is kind of fun to ... (click for more)
