Soccer Places 14 On Academic All Conference List

HIGH POINT, N.C. – The Converse College soccer team has placed 14 members on the 2018 Conference Carolinas Academic All-Conference team as announced by the league today. In total, 144 (85 women/59 men) student-athletes were named to the list. The Valkyries had the most of any institution within the conference. 

The mission of Conference Carolinas is to provide athletics experiences that complement and enhance every aspect of student growth. It is exciting to announce the Men's and Women’s Soccer Academic All-Conference team that highlights the classroom success of athletes.

The Conference Carolinas Academic All- Conference teams are comprised of junior and senior student-athletes who have competed in a conference-sponsored sport and maintained a cumulative grade point average of 3.25 or higher on a 4.0 scale in all work completed at their member institution. The GPA is calculated based on the student-athlete’s cumulative average through the previous semester and each student-athlete must have attended their member institution for at least one academic year.

Each year the Academic All-Conference Te ams are released as part of the championship season.
