NEW ORLEANS — Xavier University of Louisiana, led by fourth-time recipients Jodi Hill and Franziska Pirkl, has 37 members on the 2015-16 Gulf Coast Athletic Conference Commissioner's Honor Roll.
It's the second consecutive year that XU produced 37 for this honor. Student-athletes qualified with a grade-point average of 3.0 or higher over both semesters.
Hill and Pirkl, both of whom graduated from Xavier in May, are among eight from the women's volleyball program to make the GCAC list. Women's track and field/cross country led Xavier with nine honorees.
Third-time GCAC honorees from Xavier are Alesha Smith (women's basketball), Terri Cunningham (women's track), Taylor Reuther (women's volleyball), Adam Albrecht (men's tennis), Jarvis Thibodeaux (men's basketball) and Brent Kitto (men's track/cross country). Freshman Brianna Pace (women's track/cross country) maintained a 4.0 GPA for both semesters.
"Congratulations to our student-athletes who made the GCAC Commissioner's Honor Roll," said XU Director of Athletics and Recreation Jason Horn. "We are proud of their accomplishments and their continued commitment to excel in the classroom and in their sports."
