CARROLLTON, Ga. – A record-setting year of academic achievement for University of West Georgia student-athletes received an exclamation point Wednesday. Six UWG student-athletes were named members of the 2019 Gulf South Conference Spring All-Academic Teams,

Two of West Georgia’s honorees have already this spring earned the GSC’s top honor for academic, athletic, and community service accomplishments. Baseball standout Cade Marlowe and women’s golfer Franziska Bremm were both named All-Academic, just weeks after each was named the winner of the 2019 GSC Commissioner’s Trophy.

Marlowe, who holds a bachelor’s degree in Pre-Med Biology, is presently playing for the Everett AquaSox, a minor league affiliate of the Seattle Mariners. The Tifton, Ga. native was selected earlier this month in the 20th round of the annual Major League Draft. Bremm, who graduated last month with a degree in Biology, is also busy this summer. She is returned to her native Germany and playing in a summer golf league there.

The GSC All-Academic Team was selected in a joint vote of Faculty Athletic Representatives (FARs) and Sports Information Directors (SIDs) from each GSC Institution. Nominees to the team must have a cumulative collegiate grade point average (GPA) of at least 3.20, and they must have been an on-field contributor to their respective teams.

Beyond Marlowe and Bremm, West Georgia’s baseball and women’s golf programs each produced an additional all-academic team member. Second baseman Brian Dansereau, a senior Physical Education major from Douglasville, was elected to GSC Spring All-Academic Baseball Team. Layne Carter was elected to the team. The junior women’s golfer from Lyons is a Biology major.

Women’s track-and-field standout Amina Saunders was also voted to the squad. A graduate student from Miami, Saunders is working toward her master’s degree in Criminology. The final member of the UWG All-Academic delegation is men’s golf standout Sam Jones. A senior from Hawera, New Zeeland, Jones is a Finance major with a GPA of 3.74.

UWG’s six-person contingent on the GSC Spring All-Academic Team means that a total of 14 West Georgia student-athletes won the honor during the 2018-19 academic year. The others from earlier in the year included women’s basketball star Jessica Brown, and football stars K.J. Parmer, Noah Brown, Willie Candler, and Chris Blackston. Also chosen were soccer stars Katie Mitchell and Jackie Donaldson, and volleyball standout Katie Hanson.

Along with All-Academic announcement, the GSC also Wednesday revealed the league’s spring honor roll. A total of 69 West Georgia student-athletes earned a place on the spring honor roll. Eligibility for the honor roll is based on having participated in the student-athletes’ individual sport while maintaining a 2.0 GPA for their collegiate career.

Heading West Georgia’s spring contingent was baseball with 21 honor roll members. Women’s track-and-field had 18 honor roll members, softball was next with 15, men’s and women’s golf had six honor roll performers each, while the women’s tennis team was home to three honor roll members.

West Georgia’s spring total of 67 GSC Academic Honor Roll members is notable. That number brings to 147 the number of honor roll student-athletes produced by the UWG program during the recently completed academic year. The total crushed the former all-time school record 125 honor roll student-athletes produced by West Georgia during the 2016-17 academic year.
