ATLANTA – With seven members of the Georgia State men’s golf team earning academic honors, the Panthers finished the spring with a 3.50 GPA, the second-highest mark of any male sport at GSU during the semester.
Senior Severin Soller and freshman David Li earned President’s List honors for a GPA of 4.0 or higher, while juniors Josh Edgar and Egill Gunnarsson earned Dean’s List honors for a semester GPA of 3.5 or higher.
“Once again really proud of what our guys did in the classroom during the spring,” head coach Chad Wilson said. “Since well before my arrival, our program has taken academics extremely seriously as we prepare these young men for life after golf and college. Our guys proved again what they are capable of in the classroom this semester.”
Georgia State student-athletes achieved a 3.16-grade point average for the spring semester, with 184 individuals earning academic honors, including an all-time high 53 Panthers on the President’s List.
The 3.16-grade point average marks the 22nd consecutive semester, dating back to 2008, that the Panthers have maintained a GPA (semester or cumulative) of 3.0 or higher, and it gives the athletic department a 3.11 GPA for the 2018-19 academic year.
Georgia State will return to the course in September for the start of the 2019-20 season.
