SPARTANBURG, S.C. - UNCG had 118 student-athletes named to the 2012-13 Southern Conference Honor Roll, the league office announced Thursday. 

Men's soccer led the way for the Spartans boasting 22 student-athletes on the Academic Honor Roll. Women's soccer wasn't far behind with 18 players being selected. 

UNCG had seven student-athletes earn a perfect 4.0 GPA including Noah Deangelo (men's soccer), Preston Ford (men's soccer), Maximillian Schulz (men's soccer), Eira Jensen (women's cross country/track), Zoe Fishman (women's soccer), Karin Sendel (women's soccer) and Jamie Simmons (women's soccer). 

The honor roll topped 2,000 student-athletes for the first time in conference history, surpassing the record 1,985 that were honored in 2010-11. The 25-year-old award originated in 1988-89, when SoCon athletic directors established the honor roll prior 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 those more than 2,000 student-athletes on the list, 894 earned the Commissioner’s Medal, awarded annually to student-athletes who attain a GPA of 3.5 or higher throughout the year. Of those, 85 had perfect 4.0 GPAs, with Georgia Southern boasting a SoCon-high 19 with perfect marks for the year.

Davidson had a league-best 258 student-athletes on the honor roll, while Wofford was second with 202. Each of the SoCon’s 12 league schools had at least 118 student-athletes on the list.

Football boasted the most student-athletes on the list with 300, followed by women's soccer with 230 and women’s track and field and cross country with 211. The honor roll includes all 19 SoCon-sponsored sports as well as the non-sponsored sports of field hockey, lacrosse, swimming and diving, equestrian, rifle and sailing. League schools who sponsor swimming are members of the Coastal Collegiate Swimming Association.
