2012 Peach Belt Conference Women's Tennis All-Academic Team
AUGUSTA, Ga. – May 15, 2012 – The Peach Belt Conference released its women's tennis All-Academic team on Tuesday, and selected from Clayton State was Marie Cercelletti.
Cercelletti was one of 12 players selected to the team. In addition, Laker teammates Charlotte Fabricius and Martina Dedaj were both selected honorable mention All-Academic for the PBC.

The Peach Belt Conference Sports Information Directors oversee and select the teams.
Cercelletti, a senior from Domvallier, France, was a second team All-Peach Belt Conference selection in singles, marking the first time she has earned an All-Conference honor for her Laker career.
