Surry Community College ranks sixth among all community colleges in North Carolina with 24 student-athletes receiving spring Academic All-Region honors for their performance in the classroom during the Spring 2020 semester.

Region 10 recently announced the All-Academic honors, which are presented to student-athletes in spring sports who achieved at least a 3.0 grade point average while earning a minimum of twelve credit hours and participating in a spring semester sport (baseball, golf, softball, track and field, etc.).

Surry Community College’s baseball team led the way with 15 players earning All-Region Academic team honors. Surry baseball players honored included Bryson Beeber, Noah Caldwell, Dillon Draughn, Brantley Durham, Colby Guy, Alex Hooker, Lemonte Johnson, Josh Maddux, John Marion, Ethan McLain, Logan Philemon, Mitchell Picton, Dylan Poplin, Josh Reynolds, and Clay Taylor. Both Reynolds and Taylor posted a perfect 4.0 grade point average for the entire academic year.

Five total members of the Surry golf teams were recognized. Zeke Eaton, Evan Marion, Austin Smith and Will Zeller were named from the men’s team while Alysaa Cox was recognized from the women’s squad. Four SCC softball team members were recognized including Taylor Fowler, Courtney Mullins, Shea Triplett and Makara Woodbury.

Surry ranked sixth among North Carolina’s community colleges with 24 spring recipients. The Knights also placed nine members on the fall semester All-Academic team with six members from the volleyball team along with three student-athletes from the golf team. Surry volleyball player Abbey Johnson posted a perfect 4.0 grade point average for the academic year.

“We are excited to have several of our student-athletes honored by Region 10 for their academic performance,” said Surry Athletic Director Mark Tucker. “Our student-athletes have had a very successful academic year in the classroom. It is very disappointing that many of our seasons were cut short due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Regardless of the situation, we are extremely proud of our student-athletes for their commitment and perseverance. Our coaches are great with emphasizing the importance of academics to our student-athletes on a daily basis.”

A total of 739 student-athletes from 32 member colleges in Region 10 were honored this spring.
