Georgia baseball’s impressive regular season has garnered the attention of the rest of the SEC.
Leading the accolades for Georgia is senior left fielder Keegan McGovern.
Not only was McGovern an All-SEC first team selection, but also he was named the SEC’s Co-Scholar Athlete of the Year alongside Nico Mascia of Tennessee.
Mascia holds a 3.99 GPA in biomolecular engineering.
McGovern holds a 3.48 GPA in biology.

“McGovern holds a 3.48 grade point average in biology. He has been named to the SEC Academic Honor Roll in every semester and is a member of UGA’s Student-Athlete Leadership Academy, chosen based on academic, athletic success, leadership, and campus and community involvement,” according to the SEC release.
McGovern leads the Bulldogs with a .330 batting average, .639 slugging percentage, 62 runs, and 15 home runs. While he was selected to the All-SEC first team, two of his teammates made the second team.
First baseman Adam Sasser and DH Michael Curry both earned All-SEC second team honors.
Also, freshman catcher Mason Meadows made the All-Freshman team.
Georgia begins play in the SEC Tournament on Wednesday at 10:30 a.m. ET, when they will face the winner of Texas A&M and Vanderbilt from Tuesday. The Bulldogs can cement their case for a top-8 national seed with a deep run this week in Hoover.
