The South Carolina cross country team received USTFCCCA All-Academic Cross Country Team honors after posting a team grade point average of 3.56 for the fall semester, the 14th highest team mark of the 146 teams to receive the honor.

To be honored as an All-Academic Team, teams were required to compete in an NCAA regional meet and have at least a cumulative GPA of 3.0. Six Southeastern Conference teams received All-Academic Team honors, with South Carolina posting the highest team GPA.

Six student-athletes were named to the President’s List, the award given for a perfect 4.0 GPA. Senior Karen Wigal (Honors College – chemical engineering), junior Rebecca Chain (exercise science), and sophomores Casey Gale (English) and Megan Robers (Honors College – business) each earned the award along with freshman Amanda Barrett (exercise science). Wigal has been a member of the President’s List for seven consecutive semesters since coming to the university.

Nine student-athletes were earned a spot on the Dean’s List which calls for a minimum GPA of 3.5 for upperclassmen and 3.25 for freshman. Senior Jackie Vignos (public relations), sophomores Kelsey Bristol (exercise science), Danielle Franklin (political science), Anna Petrov (early childhood education), Callie Rabun (exercise science), Laura Regensburg (sport and entertainment management), and Alyse Shayer (mathematics) and freshmen Katarina Cap (pharmacy) and Katie Daly (nursing) each earned Dean’s List recognition for the Fall semester.

Two Gamecocks, senior Nicki Breves (exercise science) and freshman Lisa McKinney (biology), were also named to the AD Honor Roll (minimum GPA 3.0).

Forty-five student-athletes from 18 intercollegiate teams were named to the Fall 2006 President’s List, with six coming from the cross country team, while 125 student-athletes were named to the Dean’s List.

The mean Fall GPA for the 203 female student-athletes was 3.342, while the overall GPA for the entire USC student body of 17,741 students was 3.111.
