Bryant compiled a 6-4 record in singles play and 11-7 in doubles during the 2015 campaign.
Fellow chemical engineering majors Frith (3.70 GPA) and Mould (3.94 GPA) also excelled on the field, as both were All-GSC selections for their performance this past season. Mould, an Athens, Alabama, native, put together a 5-2 record with nine saves and 38 strikeouts over 38.0 innings pitched as the Blue and White's closer, while Frith – who hails from the Rocket City – was second on the UAH softball team with a .372 batting average and 36 stolen bases.
Both Frith and Mould were recognized previously as CoSIDA Capital One Academic All-District performers. Academic All-GSC Team members must have an overall grade point average of 3.20 or better on a 4.00 scale for their entire academic career and may not be freshmen or first-semester transfers.
The student-athlete must be a significant contributor to the squad. Other factors include leadership, community service and extra-curricular activities. The number of student-athletes selected in each sport is determined by the number of positions normally involved in the playing of that sport. Ties are not broken in the voting process.
