King Soccer Places Five on All-Academic Team

Pete Griffith, Zachary Clark, and David Eagan have been named to the 2012 Academic All-Conference Team, as announced by the league Thursday.

HIGH POINT, N.C. – Conference Carolinas is proud to announce the 2012 Men's and Women's Soccer Academic All-Conference Team award winners.  On that list include three King Men's Soccer players, Pete Griffith, Zachary Clark, and David Eagan.

Griffith, a junior from Ballyclare, N. Ireland, has returned to the lineup in a big way both with superb play and leadership to the Tornado squad. In the team's last five matches, he has scored all four of his goals and helped the team to its pair of wins this season. David Eagan (Huntsville, Ala.) and Zachary Clark (Huntsville, Ala.), both juniors, have played in a combined 28 contests this season for the Tornado.

Caroline Gentry and Lauren Kist have been mainstays in the Tornado lineup all season long. Gentry, a Bristol, Tenn. (Tennessee H.S.) native, plays midfield and has been a spark whether she starts or comes on the pitch in reserve. On the backline, Lauren Kist (Tampa, Fla./Lambuth Unv.) was one of many called upon to hold strong on the backline with injuries plaguing both attackers and keepers. 

For the full list of honorees, the complete men's and women's lists are below.

The 2012 Conference Carolinas Men's and Women's Soccer Academic All-Conference representatives have been awarded to the following junior and senior student-athletes with a cumulative grade point average of 3.25 or higher on a 4.0 scale in all work completed at their member institution that have played in a conference sponsored sport. The GPA is calculated based on the student-athletes cumulative average through the previous semester and each student-athlete must have attended their member institution for at least one academic year.

League member institutions stress the role of "Academics and Athletics Working Together" and each sport's Academic All-Conference award winners exemplify this continued league-wide commitment. Each year the Academic All-Conference Team is released while closing out each regular season before starting the tournament championships.
