COLLEGE NOTES

The Berry College baseball team earned Team Academic Excellence honors from the American Baseball Coaches Association. Teams from every level of college and high school baseball were honored with this year’s award, which highlights programs coached by ABCA members that posted a GPA of 3.0 or above on a 4.0 scale for the entire 2019-20 academic year.  Berry finished the shortened season 13-5 overall with a perfect 6-0 mark in conference play. The Vikings also posted an unbeaten 8-0 record on the road.

Congratulations to our Berry men’s golf team for earning GCAA All-Academic Team recognition for their efforts last season.
