Four Hawks Basketball Players Named To GCAA All-Academic Team

Posted on Mar 13, 2019

Four members of South Georgia State College’s men’s basketball team have been recognized by the coaches of the Georgia Collegiate Athletic Association (GCAA) for academic achievement.

Luke Lawson of Gray, Ga., Riley Meloncon of Pikeville, Tenn., Keyshaun Street of Kingsland, Ga., and Antonio Vendola of Fernandina Beach, Fla., were each named to the GCAA’s All-Academic Team. GCAA student athletes must attend college full-time for at least three semesters and maintain a minimum 3.0 grade point average to qualify for the recognition.

“These four guys have had an unreal run here (at SGSC) on the court and in the classroom,” said head coach Cory Baldwin. “This is an awesome honor, and I am proud of each of them.”

The Hawks qualified for this year’s GCAA Basketball Tournament as the seventh seed. SGSC lost to the Central Georgia Tech Titans in the quarterfinal round. The Titans captured the tournament championship.
