HILTON HEAD, S.C. – Georgia College's Robin Möller (Hamburg, Germany) was named the Peach Belt Conference (PBC) male Scholar-Athlete of the Year at the league's annual awards dinner in Hilton Head. The award is the highest individual honor given by the PBC to a male student-athlete during the year and is selected by the league's Faculty Athletic Representatives.
Möller adds the honor to an overflowing mantle of year-end recognitions, leaving as one of the most decorated student-athletes in PBC history. Winner of the Intercollegiate Tennis Association's (ITA) Arthur Ashe Leadership & Sportsmanship Award earlier this month, he graduated with a degree in exercise science and a 3.94 GPA. He was named a Google Cloud Academic All-District selection this season, and took spots on the All-PBC First Team in both singles and doubles.
The nation's No. 18 singles player, Möller went 15-2 this season, including victories over four nationally-ranked players. In doubles action, he teamed with junior Matt Rogel (Sautron, France) for a 16-3 record, taking the No. 3 slot in the country. Möller is the fourth Bobcat to win the PBC male Scholar Athlete of the Year, and the first since GC Basketball's Aaron Clark in 2008.
