Head coach Kevin Fillman’s squad was among 130 Division I programs to attain a grade-point average (GPA) of 3.00 or above throughout the 2018-19 academic year.

Fillman’s squad has received recognition on the All-Academic Team for achieving a team-GPA of at least a 3.00 in each of the 11 seasons the GCAA began naming the All-Academic Team since 2009.

Longwood is one of six Big South programs among the All-Academic Teams with a team GPA of 3.00 or better, joined by High Point, Presbyterian, Radford, USC Upstate and Winthrop.

To be eligible for GCAA All-Academic Team honors a college or university must submit the GPAs for each player on its official squad list for the academic year.
