Geneva College leads the Presidents' Athletic Conference Fall Academic Honor Roll

Geneva's 59 student-athletes on the list are the most from any college in the PAC.

BEAVER FALLS, PA (01/23/2015)(readMedia)-- Fifty-nine Geneva College student-athletes placed on the Presidents' Athletic Conference Fall Academic Honor Roll, the conference announced today. The PAC Academic Honor Roll recognizes student-athletes on varsity sports teams who have earned a grade-point average (GPA) of 3.60 or higher on a 4.0 scale during their semester of competition. Of the 12 affiliated institutions in the PAC, Geneva led in the number of student-athletes on the Honor Roll.

"Academics has and always will be our first priority at Geneva College," said athletic director Van Zanic. "We are so proud of our student-athletes and the work they do in the classroom. To have over 50 honorees this past fall is just more proof of the hard work that goes into being a student athlete at Geneva."

Three student-athletes achieved the rare honor of being named both first-team in their sport and achieving honor roll status. In volleyball, senior Erin Smith (Sewickley, PA/Ambridge) and freshman Erica Hughes (North Jackson, OH/Jackson Milton) achieved that distinction. In soccer, junior Heidi Mann (Colorado Springs, CO/Evangelical Christian Academy) achieved the honor.
