A number of Southeast
Community College student-athletes were recently named Academic All-Americans.
In order to qualify, students must have at least a 3.30 cumulative grade-point
“I am both thrilled and proud
that so many of our student-athletes qualified for post-season academic
All-American honors, as well as our student-athlete body averaging a 3.00 GPA,”
said Dan Johnson, athletic director. “This reflects that both our coaching
staff and athletes place high regards for competitiveness on the court and in
the classroom as well.”
In addition, four SCC teams earned
academic honors, achieving a 3.0 or above: Women’s basketball (3.6) and
volleyball (3.28) and men’s cross country/half marathon (3.07) and baseball
“We had a
great group of players who worked hard on and off the court,” said Lynn
Schlake, head women’s basketball coach. “They are of high character and perform
well in all areas of their lives, and represent our college in a high manner.”
