Birmingham, AL -- The Valdosta State spring sports represented VSU at its best with a Gulf South Conference high 11 student-athletes named to the GSC’s All-Academic Team. Thirty-four VSU student-athletes earned a high enough grade point average to be listed on the GSC Academic Honor Roll.

Valdosta State softball led the way with five players earning All-Academic Team honors. Marti Littlefield earned her third consecutive Academic All-GSC award while Natalia Morozova was a unanimous selection this season. Littlefield earned a 3.29 in exercise physiology while Morozova earned a 3.63 GPA in international business.
