Rifle competitors named Scholastic All-Americans


After winning their second Southern Conference championship in as many years, eight UNG rifle student-athletes were named Scholastic All-Americans by the Collegiate Rifle Coaches Association.

Ruthanne Conner, Arica Hayes, Kimberlee Nettles, Hannah Peevy, Tobin Sanctuary, Brianna Shaw, Dakota Spivey, and David Turner earned the honor for UNG this year. The eight Nighthawks surpassed UNG’s mark from last year after six were named to the squad in 2017.

To earn the honor, a student-athlete must maintain at least a 3.2 grade-point average (GPA).

These awards come on the heels of a second SoCon championship for UNG, where multiple Nighthawks were named All-Conference and Conner won the Pinnacle Award, given to the student-athlete with the highest GPA on the championship team.
