Dacula's Calhoun gets national academic honor

Dacula grad Tripp Calhoun received the National Junior College Athletic Association's Superior Academic Achievement Award, previously known as the Academic All-American Award, this week.

Calhoun started at catcher the past two seasons for Darton College's baseball team, which just finished off a program-best 42-14 season. Athletes earn the academic award for having a 3.8 or better GPA after earning at least 45 hours of college credit.

Calhoun has accepted a scholarship offer to play his final two college seasons at Troy.
