Gamecocks Hit Department High For First-Year Academic Honor Roll Members
July 11, 2018

COLUMBIA, S.C. - A total of 101 South Carolina student-athletes made the 2017-2018 First-Year SEC Academic Honor Roll, as commissioner Greg Sankey released this year's list on Wednesday. It is the highest total for the Gamecocks in the award's history, and ranks second for the most in the SEC. South Carolina has finished no worse than second over the last 16 years.

In total, 956 SEC student-athletes earned a spot, based on grades from the 2017-2018 academic year.

Any student-athlete who participates in a Southeastern Conference championship sport or a student-athlete who participates in a sport listed on his/her institution's NCAA Sports Sponsorship Form is eligible for nomination to the Academic Honor Roll. The following criteria will be followed: (1) A student-athlete must have a grade point average of 3.00 or above for either the preceding academic year (two semesters or three quarters) or have a cumulative grade point average of 3.00 or above at the nominating institution. (2) If a student-athlete attends summer school, his/her grade point average during the summer academic term must be included in the calculation used to determine eligibility for the Academic Honor Roll. (3) Student-athletes eligible for the Honor Roll include those receiving an athletics scholarship, recipients of an athletics award (i.e., letter winner), and non-scholarship student-athletes who have been on a varsity team for two seasons. (4) Prior to being nominated, a student-athlete must have successfully completed 24 semester or 36 quarter hours of non-remedial academic credit toward a baccalaureate degree at the nominating institution. (5) The student-athlete must have been a member of a varsity team for the sport's entire NCAA Championship segment.
