Senior men’s lacrosse student-athlete Evan Francois, junior women’s lacrosse student-athlete Meredith Brown, and junior women’s tennis student-athlete Brooke Garland all represented Brevard College in their respective sports on the 2022 USA South Conference All-Sportsmanship Teams.

Francois, a senior attacker, concluded his Tornado career by playing in all 14 contests for BC men’s lacrosse in 2022, totaling 10 points with five goals and five assists, racking up 30 ground balls and six caused turnovers in his senior campaign.

Garland totaled 10 singles victories and maintained a 4-3 singles record in conference action, while totaling 11 doubles wins over the course of Brevard’s 11-win season in 2021-22.
