Adairsville High School alum and Georgia Northwestern Technical College sophomore basketball player Carrie Benedict was recognized nationally last week as a USCAA Division II Honorable Mention Academic All-American.
The Bobcats’ sophomore was joined in national recognition by Georgia Northwestern teammate Darrius Fugh. Fugh was named a USCAA Division II Honorable Mention All-American.
Benedict was recognized for her 4.0 grade point average while taking 56 hours of classes in Automotive Technology.
