UNCGSpartans.com 07-06-2017

GREENSBORO, N.C. – The Southern Conference released its academic honor roll for the 2016-17 academic year Thursday, with a league-record 2,100 student-athletes from the 10 member institutions and 13 associate members earning the distinction. UNCG placed 154 of its student-athletes on the list. Women's soccer led the way with 23 honorees while baseball was second with 22 and men's soccer was third with 17 honorees.

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.

Of the 2,100 student-athletes on the list, 468 earned the Commissioner's Medal, awarded annually to student-athletes who attain a GPA of 3.8 or higher throughout the year. The Spartans had 43 student-athletes earn Commissioner's Medals this year. Women's soccer again led with eight members earning Commissioner's Medals while men's soccer and softball were second with six selections.

A league-record 148 student-athletes boasted perfect 4.0 GPAs in 2016-17, surpassing the previous standard of 145 set last year. UNCG was strong in this category as well with 21 student-athletes boasting a 4.0 GPA for the academic year. Three teams in softball, women's soccer and women's cross country/track were tied with six members earning perfect 4.0 GPAs for the 2016-17 academic year.
