COLUMBIA, S.C. - For the sixth-consecutive year, South Carolina leads the Southeastern Conference by placing 97 student-athletes on the league's First-Year Academic Honor Roll, the conference office announced today.
The 97 student-athletes on this year's listing matches last year's total and stood 10 better than Alabama's 87 in second place. Kentucky's 73 student-athletes on the first-year listing stood third.
