LAGRANGE, Ga. --- The Great South Athletic Conference announced its 2010-11 men's and women's basketball All-Conference awards earlier today with five Hawks and two Lady Hawks making the list.


The Lady Hawks' Jessi Andrews and Ashley Bonner earned GSAC All-Academic Team honors for this season after recording at least a 3.25 GPA in the classroom. Andrews also took home the GSAC's Individual Sportsmanship Award for the Lady Hawks. “I'm proud of the girls hard work in academics as well as athletics in receiving this honor,” said head coach Buzz Phillips.


“I'd like to congratulate these young men for the great accomplishments they received from the conference this season,” said head coach Mike Pugh on the five Hawks awarded by the GSAC.
