Wildcat Wrestlers Earn Eight Spots on Academic Honor Roll

by | Jun 30, 2019

All three Davidson wrestlers in the Class of 2019 were named to the SoCon Academic Honor Roll.

 

SPARTANBURG, S.C. – Eight Davidson grapplers earned a spot on the Southern Conference Academic honor roll, announced by the league office Wednesday.

The list was made up of three seniors, Aidan Conroy, Tony Palumbo and Zamir Ode; junior Noah Satterfield, sophomore Will Baldwin and freshmen Erik Eva, Finlay Holston and Caleb Ziebell.

In April, the Wildcats earned NWCA Division I Scholar All-America Team honors from the National Wrestling Coaches Association, ranking 27th in the nation as a team. It was the second consecutive season Davidson earned this distinction and the third time since 2015.

The academic honor roll originated in 1988-89, when SoCon athletic directors established the award as a way to recognize the league’s outstanding student-athletes. The academic honor roll consists of student-athletes who participated in varsity sports at member institutions and posted a 3.0 grade point average or higher while passing at least 24 hours in two semesters of classes or its equivalent for other academic calendars. Associate members are eligible for the award for the first time this year.
