Golfer receives Peach of an Athlete Award

UGA golfer Sylvie Brick received the female Peach of an Athlete Award from the Atlanta Area Council of the Boy Scouts of America at the organization’s annual Role Model banquet.

A senior from Frankfort, Illinois, Brick has been a standout for UGA in all facets of being a student-athlete. Most notably, she was selected to represent Southeastern Conference female student-athletes for all sports and schools at the 2015 NCAA Leadership Forum.

Last season, Brick competed in six tournaments for the golf team and registered counting scores in 75 percent of her 12 rounds. She played a key role in UGA’s runner-up finish at the Liz Murphey Collegiate Classic and also posted her first collegiate top-10 finish at Seton Hall’s Pirate Invitational.

In the classroom, Brick has been selected to the National Society of Collegiate Scholars.

Currently president of UGA’s Student-Athletic Advisory Committee, Brick not only has participated in numerous community service activities, she also spearheaded several efforts.

The Role Model banquet honors a professional individual, a professional athlete and 10 college athletes. Brick was the overall female Peach of an Athlete recipient while UGA swimmer Ty Stewart and football player Malcolm Mitchell were among the five male student-athletes recognized.
