Cross Country - Tue, Nov. 8, 2016
Georgetown College cross country teams celebrated another successful season at the Mid-South Conference banquet Friday. Five Tigers were honored for their hard work not only as athletes, but as students as well.
The league office awards student-athletes of at least sophomore standing with a 3.25 grade point average conference academic honors.
For the second straight year, women's cross country's Sydney Berry earned the honor. Karina Egger received her first academic honors.
On the men's side, coach Lucas Garnett had three first-time honorees – Grant Carr, Erick Mills and Benjamin Peterson.
"I enjoy these awards more than all-conference honors," Garnett said. "This award shows the dedication these men and women have to their studies as well as the team. It is not easy to carry the schedule we do and keep up with the rigors of classwork and class schedule.
"Seeing them succeed in both is rewarding in and of itself to me. I'm excited to see our guys and Karina for stepping it up this year. I'm proud of Sydney for her continued hard work. I'm also proud of the ones that are doing the work, but maybe just not making the grade they want. Their hard work and motivation will carry them far and I expect to see more on this list next year."
