ROME, Ga. -- The USA South Athletic Conference announced its 2019-20 All-Academic honorees on Wednesday and 93 Covenant student-athletes were recognized.

To qualify for the honor, a student-athlete must produce at least a 3.30 GPA in both the fall and spring semesters. Additionally, any student-athlete that compiled a 3.90 or better GPA in each semester earned All-Academic honors with distinction. 

It is the second straight year that Covenant has placed 93 on the list. Of those 93 honorees this year, 13 garnered distinction accolades.

Covenant also saw 10 seniors collect All-Academic honors for a fourth straight year. Kirsten Aanensen, Nathan Hawkins, Lizzy Hightower, Mitchell Hollis, Paul Lemay, Erika Mast, Caroline Pepper, Colby Pepper, Michelann Settle, and Lindsey Stephens all graduated as four-time USA South All-Academic recipients.

Women's soccer once again led all Covenant programs with 17 honorees, while men's soccer had 12. Softball and baseball programs each had 11 honorees with volleyball and women's tennis rounding out the top five with seven apiece.

As a department, Covenant set an NCAA-era record with a 3.35 GPA during the spring semester as all 14 athletic programs produced a GPA above 3.0.
