2017-2018 Academic Award Honors

Several Pensacola State College (PSC) student-athletes earned academic honors for their outstanding work in the classroom during the 2017-2018 academic year. For the year the athletic department's grade point average (GPA) was a solid 3.00.

The Pirates had 12 student-athletes who earned National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) Academic Student-Athlete Awards including three (Donald Dvorak, Bentley Odom and Sadie Rusteika) who were honored with First Team honors for having a perfect 4.0 GPA. Four Pirates (Amelia Johnson, Aminat Jubril, Allison Von Brock and Brandi Washington) earned Second Team accolades for GPA's of 3.80-3.99 and the remaining five students (Logan Blackmon, Ashley Gardenal, Jared Hatch, Robyn Krause and Griffin Rivers) were awarded Third Team honors for 3.60-3.79 GPA's. 

In addition to National awards, PSC student-athletes picked up State and Conference academic accolades. Thirty-one Pirates were named to the Florida College System Activities Association (FCSAA) All-Academic team for having a 3.3 GPA or higher and 38 earned the minimum 3.0 GPA in the classroom to earn Panhandle Conference All-Academic team honors.
