ATLANTA – With eight members of the Georgia State men’s golf team earning academic honors, the Panthers finished the spring with a 3.40 GPA, the highest mark for a male sport at GSU during the semester.

Head coach Chad Wilson’s squad has a cumulative 3.64 team grade point average, also the highest of any male sport at Georgia State.

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

Sophomore Egill Gunnarsson earned Dean’s List honors for a semester GPA of 3.5 or higher.

Juniors Nick Budd, James Kyles, Severin Soller and Nathan Williams, along with sophomore Josh Edgar, garnered Athletic Director’s Honor Roll for maintaining a GPA of 3.0 or higher.

“Really proud of what our guys did in the classroom during this spring,” 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 3.14-grade point average for the spring 2018 semester, with 196 individuals earning academic honors, including 42 Panthers on the President’s List.


The 3.14-grade point average marks the 20th consecutive semester, dating back to 2008, that the Panthers have maintained a GPA (semester or cumulative) of 3.0 or higher.


Eight Georgia State programs earned a team GPA of 3.4 or higher for the spring, led by the women’s tennis team at 3.81 and women’s cross country at 3.80.
