Maxwell Named to PBC All-Academic Team

AUGUSTA, GA – Wil Maxwell has been named to the Peach Belt Conference All-Academic Team announced by the conference office. The senior from Dahlonega, Georgia, was named PBC Defensive Player of the Week during the 2008 season.

The teams are one of the first in a new 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 participate in at least half of their team’s events, achieve a 3.2 cumulative grade point average on a 4.0 scale, and have completed at least one full academic year at their current institution. The Peach Belt Conference Sports Information Directors nominated and voted on the selected teams.

Wil Maxwell, a senior Politcal Science major, has a 4.0 grade point average during his senior year at North Georgia, one of only two athletes named to the team with a perfect 4.0 GPA. He played in 20 games for the Saints in 2008, recording one assist in 1045 minutes of play. He attempted six shots with five of those on goal.
