SAVANNAH, Ga. – The Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) announced the 2017 Men's Golf All-Academic selections, honoring 22 student-athletes from the conference's seven golf institutions who achieved academic success during the 2016-17 academic year. Augusta seniors Viktor Edin, Emmanuel Kountakis, Jake Marriott, Meechai Padung, and junior Broc Everett all represent Augusta University on the team.


MEAC sophomore, junior and senior student-athletes with a 3.0 or better cumulative grade point average (GPA), as well as transfer student-athletes who have been in residence at the institution for at least one year, are eligible for All-Academic accolades.


"I would like to commend our men's golf student-athletes who have maintained a 3.0 or better grade point average during this academic school year," said Commissioner Dr. Dennis E. Thomas. "In addition to recognizing the student-athletes' achievements, I also salute the academic support staff, coaches and parents for their support in the success of these student-athletes both on the course and in the classroom."
