Augustine Named Bobcat Athlete of the Week

MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. – Senior Mike Augustine (Waterloo, Ill.) of the Georgia College men’s basketball team (12-7, 5-5 PBC) was named the most recent Bobcat Athlete of the Week for the week ending Jan. 29. This marks the first such honor for Augustine and the sixth for Bobcat men’s hoops this season.
