This weekend, in the 20th minute of play in the match, Adrianne Mancino scored a goal against Georgia Southern, which proved enough to earn the regular-season Southern Conference championship for our soccer team. It was a great win, but there are other reasons to celebrate the work of these student-athletes. For instance, in the most recent Academic Progress Ratings from the NCAA, measuring their scholastic success, the members of our team scored 993 points out of 1,000. They are champions on the soccer field and in the classroom.
The world is better because Samford student-athletes exceed expectations.
