GREENSBORO, N.C. – UNCG had 111 student-athletes on the 2013-14 Southern Conference Academic Honor Roll, which recognizes a grade point average of 3.0 or higher. The Spartans also had 49 student-athletes earn Commissioner’s Medal accolades, which marks GPA of 3.50 or higher.

Women’s soccer led the way with 17 student-athletes on the list, while women’s cross country/track had 15 honorees. All 17 sports sponsored by UNCG were represented on the honor roll with men’s soccer (13), men’s cross country/track (11), volleyball (9), softball (9), baseball (8), men’s tennis (7), women’s tennis (6), women’s basketball (5), men’s golf (5), women’s golf (4) and men’s basketball (2).

Men’s soccer senior Preston Ford (Jamestown, N.C./High Point Christian) was one of 49 recipients of the Commissioner’s Medal and the only student-athlete with a perfect 4.0 GPA in 2013-14.

The Southern Conference had 1,915 student-athletes from the 11 member institutions earning the distinction on the Academic Honor Roll. Of the nearly 2,000 student-athletes on the list, 873 earned the Commissioner’s Medal, awarded annually to student-athletes who attain a GPA of 3.5 or higher throughout the year. Of those, 81 had perfect 4.0 GPAs, with Chattanooga boasting a SoCon-high 17 with perfect marks for the year.

The academic honor roll originated in 1988-89, when SoCon athletic directors established the award as a way to recognize the league's outstanding student-athletes. The academic honor roll consists of student-athletes who participated in varsity sports at member institutions and posted a 3.0 grade point average or higher while passing at least 24 hours in two semesters of classes or its equivalent for other academic calendars.
