ATLANTA – With nine members of the Georgia State men’s golf team earning academic honors, the Panthers finished the fall with a 3.65 GPA, the highest mark for a male sport at GSU during the semester.

Seniors Alex Herrmann and Max Herrmann each earned President’s List honors for a GPA of 4.0 or higher. It marked the seventh-straight semester that the twin brothers each earned the top honor given out at Georgia State.

Juniors Nick Budd and Severin Soller along with sophomores Josh Edgar and Egill Gunnarsson earned Dean’s List honors for a semester GPA of 3.5 or higher.

Juniors Nathan Williams and James Kyles, along with Hayden Poole who now works as a student-assistant for the team, garnered Athletic Director’s Honor Roll for maintaining a GPA of 3.0 or higher.

“Just really proud of what our guys did in the classroom during the fall,” head coach Chad Wilson said. “They continue to show how important the student part of student-athlete is. We are equally proud to have the top male GPA of all teams at Georgia State.”

The Panthers set a team record with a 3.85 GPA last year, earning the GCAA National Academic Championship with the top men’s golf GPA in the country.

Georgia State student-athletes achieved a 3.16-grade point average for the fall 2017 semester, with 222 individuals earning academic honors.


The 3.16-grade point average marks the 19th consecutive semester, dating back to 2008, that the Panthers have maintained a GPA (semester or cumulative) of 3.0 or higher.

Georgia State will return to the course Feb. 16-18, for the All-American Intercollegiate in Houston, Texas for the first of six spring tournaments leading into NCAA Regional play.
