CSU Athletics Wins First-Ever Peachbelt Conference SAAC Award

PBCAUGUSTA, Ga. – Columbus State University won the inaugural Peachbelt Conference (PBC) Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) Challenge Award, a recognition honoring the member institution’s SAAC that showcases the best commitment to academics, sportsmanship, service and Make-A-Wish funds raised.

“What a great recognition of our student-athletes for their impact on and off the field of competition,” said Todd Reeser, athletic director for Columbus State University. “I appreciate our SAAC leaders, coaches and students in emphasizing the importance in developing all facets of our well-rounded student-athletes.”

Member schools are awarded points during the academic year based on six categories. The first three categories are attendance at PBC SAAC meetings, community service and engagement events and the dollar amount raised for the Make-A-Wish Foundation. The next three categories are the number of PBC Elite 15 Award winners at the school, the percentage of PBC Presidential Honor Roll students and points earned towards PBC Team Sportsmanship Awards.

Columbus State earned the maximum amount of points for community service and engagement and had five PBC Elite 15 Awards to claim the honor.
