SOUTH POINT HONORS ACADEMIC ALL CONFERENCE TEAM
To emphasize the importance of academics in the athletic program the South Point athletic department established the South Point Academic All Conference Red Raider team. This team recognizes those who were All Conference in their sport but who have also maintained high academic standing during their sports season. Two teams are recognized each year: one for the fall sports season and one for the winter and spring sports season. Prior to the August 24th home football game versus Lincolnton South Point recognized its Academic All-Conference team for the 2017-18 year.
Congratulations to these scholar athletes.
To receive this award the scholar athlete must be named an All-Conference player; maintain a 3.5 unweighted grade point average during that sports semester; incur no infractions; and have no more than 5 excused absences.
