SPARTANBURG, S.C. – UNCG has placed 21 student-athletes on the 2016 Fall Academic All-Southern Conference Team, according to an announcement by the league office on Tuesday. The Spartans had five teams represented, led by six selections from the men’s soccer team. Men’s cross country and women’s soccer added five selections each, three from the volleyball team earned the honors, and women’s cross country rounds out the squad with a pair of selections.

To be eligible for the academic all-conference team, student-athletes must carry at least a 3.3 cumulative grade point average 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 freshman and first-year transfers ineligible for inclusion.

UNCG placed a pair of student-athletes on the fall Academic All-SoCon team with a perfect 4.0 GPA, Brandon King (Burnsville, N.C./Mitchell) of men’s cross country and volleyball’s Allison Penner (Aurora, Neb./Aurora).
