AUGUSTA, Ga. – The Peach Belt Conference
(PBC) announced the Women's Soccer All-Academic team from the
conference office as Georgia College had six student-athletes named
to the teams.
Binkowski, Plunkett, Treat, Newland and McAlpin were each
named to the PBC All-Academic Team last year. This marks the third
time in Binkowski and Treat’s career to receive this honor
while Plunkett and McAlpin have now received the honor twice.

The team is part of a season-long program recognizing the
outstanding accomplishments of PBC student-athletes in the
classroom as well as on the field. To be eligible for the
All-Academic team, a student-athlete must 1) participate in at

or significant contributor; 2) achieved a 3.30 cumulative grade

Information Directors oversee and select the teams.
