Stetson University led all Atlantic Sun Conference institutions in Commissioner’s Scholars for the 2013-14 academic year while placing a total of 182 student-athletes on the league’s academic honor roll.

The Hatters had 10 student-athletes earn recognition on the Commissioners’ Scholar list, three more than the next closest school in the Atlantic Sun. More than 64 percent of the student-athletes in the Atlantic Sun Conference posted a 3.0 grade point average or better.

"What an amazing conclusion to a fantastic year for the A-Sun; congratulations to our student-athletes!” A-Sun Commissioner Ted Gumbart said. “These results reflect an impressive commitment from every part of the A-Sun team – student-athletes, coaches, faculty, athletic department staff – all meeting our mission of Building Winners for Life at the highest level ever."

Already one of the most successful seasons for the A-Sun in recent history in terms of its competition and participation in postseason play, many also reached unparalleled heights in the classroom as well. For the fifth consecutive year more than 60 percent of the A-Sun's teams were honored, a first for the conference.

A total of nine sports also recorded percentage highs including baseball, men's golf, men's and women's lacrosse, men's and women's soccer, men's tennis, women's cross country and volleyball. Five sports also turned in totals of at least 80 percent of the teams recording a 3.0 GPA or better – women's lacrosse (84.52), sand volleyball (83.56), men's tennis (81.58), women's soccer (80.42) and women's cross country (80.00).

This elite group of scholars includes a total of 119 (up from 114 in 2012-13) student-athletes who received their undergraduate degrees while maintaining a perfect 4.0 GPA during the 2013-14 academic year.

Stetson had four student-athletes who finished the 2013-14 academic year with a perfect 4.0 GPA. That group includedfreshman Joe Beery from the men’s cross country team, junior Carmen Bernecker from women’s soccer, freshman Kristin Lind for sand volleyball and senior Sammi Smith from women’s golf.

A total of 38 student-athletes earned Presidential Scholar recognition. Presidential Scholar honors are earned by all student-athletes who are listed in the final squad list for their sport, who earn a cumulative GPA of 3.8 or above, who have completed their final year of eligibility and who have received their bachelor's degree this year. Stetson had a total of seven Presidential Scholars with Matthew Ady from men’s cross country, Katie DiGirolamo from sand volleyball, Andrew Epifanio from men’s cross country, Shannon Harrell from women’s cross country, Claudia Redinger from women’s golf and MayaBlue Stauffer-MacDowell from women’s tennis joining Sammi Smith on the squad.

Another 41 student-athletes claimed Commissioner Scholar recognition for landing between the 3.6 and 3.79 GPA status upon graduation, along with meeting the same requirements as Presidential Scholar recipients. Conference Scholar recognition was bestowed on another 627 individuals for their sustained achievement over at least two years, paired with a 3.4 cumulative GPA or better.

The A-Sun recognized 1,714 student-athletes as All-Academic selections for their work in the classroom by reaching the 3.0 mark, up from last year by an impressive 214. More than one-third of the 38 Presidential Scholars came from ETSU (38), while Stetson (10) accounted for a quarter of the Commissioner's Scholars and Lipscomb's total of 96 Conference Scholars topped the A-Sun. Lipscomb’s total of 211 honorees was also the most in the conference.
