HIGH POINT, N.C. – Seven members of the Lees-McRae College track and field programs were named to the Academic All-Conference teams Tuesday afternoon by the league office. Marcus Anderson, Lane Graves, Shawn Graves, Brett Page and Austin Thompson were the representatives from the men's team, while Makayla Estep and Kaitlyn Gearing were named from the women's squad.
Student-Athletes named Academic All-Conference have maintained a cumulative grade point average of 3.25 or higher on a 4.0 scale. The GPA is calculated based on the student-athlete's cumulative average through the previous semester and each student-athlete must have attended their member institution for at least one academic year. Academic All-Conference Teams are comprised of juniors and seniors who play in one of Conference Carolina's twenty sponsored sports.
LMC will return to action this Sunday in Winston-Salem, N.C. when it competes at the Conference Carolinas Indoor Championships.
