WALESKA, Ga. -- Five Reinhardt College student-athletes who competed in fall sports recently earned Daktronics-NAIA Scholar-Athlete honors from the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics, NAIA. To receive the award, a student-athlete must be a junior or above in academic standing, have a cumulative grade-point average of 3.5 or better on a 4.0 scale, and have been in attendance at the nominating institution for at least two full academic years (or one full academic year if a transfer).

Two members of Reinhardt's 2009 men's soccer team garnered the national recognition, including senior midfielder Stephen Semasky from Hiram, Ga., and junior midfielder Philip Overby from Oslo, Norway. Semasky is a transfer from NCAA Division I Georgia State University and a graduate of Hiram High School while Overby attended nearby Woodstock (Ga.) High School.

From the Lady Eagles' 2009 soccer team, senior forward Lindsay Taylor out of Marietta, Ga., and junior defender Heather Hundelt from Woodstock made the elite list. Taylor is a transfer from NCAA Division II North Georgia College & State University and graduated from Marietta High School while Hundelt attended Roswell (Ga.) High School.

Courtney Byrd, a junior setter on Reinhardt's 2009 volleyball squad, was also honored. She is from Riverdale, Ga., and a graduate of North Clayton High School.
