Each member school gets two nominees for NCAA Woman of the Year.
Presbyterian College’s nominations are golfer Serina Combs and Trinity Williams.
A two-time Big South All-Academic Team member, Combs played in all five tournaments for Presbyterian this spring, leading the team on four occasions. The Lake Worth, Fla., native concluded her Blue Hose career with a 78.64 stroke average, the fourth-lowest in the program’s DI era. Earlier this month, she was named a WGCA All-American Scholar for the fourth consecutive year.
Williams was selected to the Big South All-Academic Team for the second straight season. During the spring season, the Anderson, S.C., native had started all eight matches for Presbyterian and recorded 5 double-doubles before suffering a season-ending injury.
Shelby Petik, a PC graduate and assistant softball coach the past three seasons, has accepted a job as head coach at Eastern Florida State College in Melbourne.
Petik lettered four years for the Blue Hose before assistant coaching stints at Coker, Furman and Presbyterian. The Titans went 18-24 last season.
The Southern Conference named 2,740 students to its academic honor roll.
Six were from PC. That’s because the Blue Hose only compete in the SoCon in men’s wrestling.
The U.S. Marine Corps and American Volleyball Coaches Association jointly present a Team Academic Award for academics in the sport.
Presbyterian is one of 2,275 teams from both high schools and colleges to receive the award.
Fellow Big South members Campbell, High Point and Radford were also honored, as was the conference’s incoming member, North Carolina A&T.
