SPARTANBURG, S.C. --- Twenty-four student-athletes from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga were represented on the Southern Conference Academic All-Conference Team for the 2010 spring semester.

Senior Katie Taylor, a psychology major with the women's golf team, was one of five student-athletes in the SoCon to maintain a perfect 4.0 cumulative GPA. Senior David Moore with the men's outdoor track and field squad has a 3.97 GPA in Engineering and sophomore Maria Juliana Loza of the women's golf team has a 3.93 in Mechanical Engineering.
