67 FMU Student-Athletes Named to PBC Presidential Honor Roll
    AUGUSTA, Ga. -- Commissioner Marvin Vanover recently announced the 14th edition of the Peach Belt Conference Presidential Honor Roll, a list that includes 67 student-athletes from Francis Marion University.

    To be named to the Honor Roll, a student-athlete must have maintained a 3.00 grade point average on a 4.00 scale during the 2004-05 academic year.  This year’s list includes a record 807 student-athletes from the 12 member institutions.

    The University of North Florida leads all schools with a record 130 student-athletes named to the Honor Roll, followed by USC Aiken (82), UNC Pembroke (74), Lander University (72), USC Upstate (71), FMU and Georgia College & State University (67), Kennesaw State University (62), Columbus State University (58), Augusta State University (48), Armstrong Atlantic State University (42), and Clayton State University (34).

    FMU placed student-athletes on the list from each of the 12 PBC-sponsored sports.

    “I am extremely proud of the fact that more than one-third of all our student-athletes have again been named to this list,” said FMU director of athletics Murray Hartzler. Each academic year, approximately 180 students compete in intercollegiate athletics at FMU.

    Among the FMU athletes named to the honor roll were five who receive this recognition for the fourth time: women’s basketball players Michelle Ghere (Long Beach, Miss.) and Jennifer Howard (Raleigh, N.C.), women’s softball player Amber Gaines (Garden Grove, Calif.), and women’s soccer players Kristi Eyler (Abingdon, Md.) and Cyprian Gillingham (Hollywood, Md.).

    Earlier this year, 82 student-athletes at Francis Marion were named to the university’s Swamp Fox Athletic-Academic Honor Roll.

    FMU student-athletes named to the 2004-05 PBC Presidential Honor Roll are:
