NORMAN, Okla. — The Lee men's golf team continued its run of success both on the course and in the classroom in what was an unprecedented 2020 spring season. For the ninth straight year, the No. 9 Flames were named a Golf Coaches Association of America  All-Academic Team.
 
"I'm very proud of our guys' effort in the classroom this past season. Our continued success in the classroom is a testament to the environment that we have here at Lee University with our faculty and support staff. This is our ninth year in a row to achieve this honor, and it's definitely a team goal at the start of each season," said Lee Director of Golf, John Maupin.
 
The Flames were joined by fellow GSC Schools Delta State, Valdosta State and West Georgia.
 
A total of 250 schools across the collegiate golf landscape submitted GPA's of 3.0 or above, with 95 of those schools earning Presidents Special Recognition Honors, finishing with a team GPA of 3.5 and above.
 
Gulf South delays
start of fall sports
 
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. —  Lee University, in concert with the Gulf South Conference, will delay the start of intercollegiate competition in the fall semester to either the last week of September or the first week of October.
 
The board of directors approved the delay on Tuesday afternoon and provided a period of time for institutions to inform their student-athletes.
 
"The safety and welfare of our student-athletes, coaches and staff are our top priorities. With an uptick of COVID-19 and after reviewing recommendations from the NCAA Sport Science Institute, I believe this is the right decision by our conference," said Lee Athletics Director Larry Carpenter. "I commend our presidents for making this decision and look forward to resuming competition later in the fall." 
 
Administrators from across the league will jointly work on a schedule that fits the timeline for competition in an effort to provide a meaningful fall competition season for conference members. To accommodate this new schedule, soccer, volleyball and football will exclusively play against conference opponents.
 
Additionally, a corresponding delay to the beginning of official practices will be instituted. New schedules and additional details on implementation of the delayed fall season will be distributed by the conference as they are approved by the membership.
 
The conference will continue to monitor the situation and will be prepared to make any further changes prior to the start of practice for the adjusted championship segment.
