The Alabama Community College Conference recently announced its Spring 2023 Commissioner’s Academic Honor Roll with 50 LBW Saints represented on the list.

Student-athletes received the honor by earning a 3.0 GPA or higher.

“LBW’s goal has and always will be to provide student-athletes the resources they need to succeed in their respective sport but most importantly in the classroom. To make the Commissioner’s List speaks volumes of the sacrifice each athlete gives to their education and sport, and we are pleased to have as many athletes represented on the list. We look forward to their continued success in the classroom,” LBWCC President Dr. Brock Kelley said.

Baseball was the most-represented sport on the list with 20 Saints honored by the ACCC. Those student-athletes are Shelton Arroyo, Lane Ballard, Cade Brooks, Gabe Bryant, Brent Cadenhead, Abe Chancellor, Lane Cook, Mason Dubose, Sage Givens, TJ Grines, Kyle Handy, Austin Johnston, Dalton Kuhn, Nick Lawrence, Tripp McKinley, Jackson Pierce, Walt Spurlin, Holt Steed, Jackson Steinmetz, and Jake Wilson.

Softball followed with 13 representatives named to the list. They are Abbey Glidewell, Lauren Hudson, Anna Hull, Courtney Lunsford, Faith Myers, Kendall Perry, Hannah Phillips, Ellan Schumacher, Riley Sweeney, Emily Taylor, Madelyn Watson, Cassie Willis, and McKynlee Young.

The Saints volleyball team had 10 representatives selected. Those are Amy Garner, Zationna Horne, Samia Mason, Ashton McCullar, Brianna McLaughlin, Faith Peters, Adriane Pico, Maddie Rasmussen, Jaden Williams, and Brianna Wilson.

LBW had seven basketball athletes named to the list, which included four on the women’s team and three on the men’s team. The women were Joye Anderson, Jakyla Diawara, Olivia McLaughlin, and Nia Similien. The men were Malik Beauford, Ivan Lawson, and Jonathan Steward.

“These student-athletes and teams should be extremely proud of themselves as they have balanced academics with practice and games. I am very proud of them along with the faculty and staff at our amazing colleges for the work they do in preparing our student-athletes for life outside of athletics,” said ACCC Commissioner Dean Myrick.
