AUGUSTA – The Peach Belt Conference has released the 2021 Men’s Cross Country Team of Academic Distinction, presented by Barnes & Noble College. The team is a part of the PBC’s larger initiative to celebrate the academic achievements of PBC student-athletes and is modeled on the CoSIDA Academic All-America program.
Daniel Iordanov, a freshman management major from Americus, GA and a former Schley County cross country runner, was chosen after posting a 3.57 GPA and leading the men’s cross country team in points in all but one race.
