Southern earns A-Sun All-Academic honor

MACON, Ga. – For the first time in her career, senior Ashley Southern has been named to the Atlantic Sun Academic All-Conference team as announced by the league offices on Thursday afternoon.

This marks the sixth consecutive season that a Lady Bison has earned All-Academic honors for women’s basketball.

The Tuscumbia, Alabama native has compiled a 3.62 GPA during her three years at Lipscomb, and is on course to graduate in May with her Masters of Education in Technology Integration.

Southern also excelled on the court this season. She is currently second in the A-Sun in both points (18.1) and rebounds (9.4) per game. She has posted eight double-doubles, nine 20-point games, and one 20-rebound game this season.

The honor comes one day after it was announced Southern would be taking place in the “So You Want To Be A Coach” program of 2016. She was one of 75 student-athletes from across the country chosen to participate.
