AMERICUS – The Peach Belt Conference recently released its 2023 Men’s Soccer Team of Academic Distinction, presented by Barnes & Noble College. Sophomore Lucas Bedleg and senior Jack Malleret from Georgia Southwestern earned the recognition.

Bedleg, a computer science major from Andelarrot, France, carried a 3.55 grade point average. Malleret, an accounting major from Burlington, Ontario, maintained a 3.56 grade point average.

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 CSC Academic All-America program.
