Georgia Regents University Athletics is gearing up for the 2015-16 seasons, and the Jaguars are set for another year packed with 13 NCAA sports.
The Jaguars compete at both the NCAA Division I and Division II levels. Both men’s and women’s golf teams compete at the Division I level. Women’s golf competes as an independent with no division, while the men’s squad is an associate member of the Mid-Eastern athletic Conference (MEAC). The Jags compete in Division II in women’s volleyball, baseball, softball, and women’s and men’s cross country, basketball, tennis, and track and field.
The 11 DII sports compete as proud members of the Peach Belt Conference, one of the premier Division II athletic conferences in the country. The PBC will celebrate its 25th Anniversary during the 2015-16 season with a year-long campaign that will highlight the many accomplishments of what has become one of the elite Division II conferences in the nation. Since its inception in 1990-91, the Peach Belt has developed a consistent history of excellence which continues to this day with 35 national championships and 28 national finalists.
The Jags are coming off the 2014-15 athletic year which saw 11 of the 13 sports reach the postseason at the NCAA Regionals. GRU named two All-Americans in sophomores Clint Hardy (baseball) and Keshun Sherrill (men’s basketball), while the teams produced 20 student-athletes in 10 different sports who earned All-Region accolades and 16 were named All-Conference in the Peach Belt. The Jags also had 27 named to the PBC’s All-Academic list.
Jaguar volleyball and cross country begin their new seasons in early September, while golf and tennis commence their fall schedules in late September. Basketball season kicks off in November and golf, baseball, softball, track and field, and tennis open their full seasons in February 2016.
