For the second year in a row, senior Caroline Brinson of the Georgia women’s tennis team was named to the SEC Community Service Team.
Brinson, a native of New Orleans, Louisiana, has been selfless in giving her time to many charitable causes since joining the Athens community. On Monday, she participated in her fourth Special Olympics baseball game at Foley Field.

She also assisted with Barrow Elementary’s “Safe Walks to School” program and joined former Georgia swimmer Allison Schmitt at Beyond Basketball, a Lady Bulldog event. Brinson served as a UGA Office of Student Affairs Athlete Representative for Dinner with the Dean.
Previously, Brinson has also been involved with the End It movement to end slavery worldwide, Habitat for Humanity, Salvation Army Christmas Angel toy drive and more.
The 5-foot-9 senior, ranked 58th in ITA singles, showcases a 10-3 dual record and is 20-7 overall this year. In doubles, she pairs with Ellen Perez on the No. 1 court to form the 11th ranked duo and are 6-3 in dual play.
