93 FMU Student-Athletes Named to PBC Presidential Honor Roll

The Peach Belt Conference announced that a record 1,721 student-athletes have been named to the 26th-annual Presidential Honor Roll.  The list includes 93 student-athletes from Francis Marion University. 

The Presidential Honor Roll recognizes all student-athletes at PBC institutions who had a grade point average of 3.00 or higher, based on a 4.00 scale, for the 2016-17 academic year.   The honor roll is divided into four groups: Presidential Scholars (GPA of 3.00 to 3.24), Bronze Scholars (3.25 to 3.49), Silver Scholars (3.50 to 3.74), and Gold Scholars (3.75 to 4.00).

The 1,721 student-athletes surpasses the old record of 1,645 set in 2015-16 and gives the Peach Belt 1,000 or more honorees for the eighth year in a row. Each student-athlete will receive a certificate from the conference office.

 Among the FMU athletes named to the honor roll was baseball pitcher Chance DuCharme (Kill Devil Hills, NC) who received this recognition for the fifth time, and six athletes who earned the honor for the fourth time: women's cross country runner Emmeline Wheeler (Troy, SC), women's soccer player Kelly Anthony (Woodstock, GA), softball outfielder Briana Barzola (West Linn, OR), men's tennis player Jannik Roettlingsberger (Marl, Germany), women's tennis player Samantha Koelliker (Vielbringen, Switzerland), and volleyball middle hitter Caroline Boone (Roanoke, VA).

Earlier this year, 100 student-athletes at Francis Marion were named to the university's Swamp Fox Athletic-Academic Honor Roll for the 2016 fall semester and 92 for the 2017 spring semester.
