South Carolina Tops SEC Freshman Academic Honor Roll

 

July 19, 2010

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. - A total of 547 freshmen student-athletes were named to the 2010 SEC Freshmen Academic Honor Roll on Monday by SEC Commissioner Mike Slive. A total of 2,424 student-athletes around the league earned Academic Honor Roll recognition in 2009-10.

The University of South Carolina topped the list with 68 freshmen student-athletes on the academic roster. It's the fifth time in the past two years that the Gamecocks have led the SEC in numbers on the honor roll, which is released four times a year. Next in line were the University of Florida (58), Auburn University (56) and Mississippi State University (50).

Each student-athlete must 1) have a cumulative GPA of 3.00 or above at the nominating institution; 2) be on scholarship or a letter winner; 3) have completed 24 semester hours of non-remedial credit at the nominating institution; and 4) have been a member of the varsity team for the sport's entire NCAA Championship segment.

The 2010 SEC Freshmen Academic Honor Roll is based on grades from the 2009-10 academic calendar.
