COLUMBIA, S.C. - A record-breaking 24 student-athletes from the Gamecock equestrian team were named to the 2013 Spring SEC Academic Honor Roll, it was announced today. The previous record of 23 equestrians being named to the SEC Academic Honor Roll was set by the 2011-2012 team.

"I'm just really proud of our team for this accomplishment," South Carolina head coach Boo Major said. "We have a terrific group of young ladies who are committed to academic success and it's great to see all of their hard work pay off. I want to thank our team's academic advisor, Rob Campbell, for all of his work in helping support our student-athletes with their academics, and I also want to thank Maria Hickman and the entire staff at the Dodie Academic Enrichment Center for how much they do for all of our student-athletes here at South Carolina."

This year, a total of 1,247 student-athletes were named to the 2013 Spring SEC Academic Honor Roll by SEC Commissioner Mike Slive. The 2013 Spring SEC Academic Honor Roll is based on grades from the 2012 Summer, 2012 Fall and 2013 Spring terms.

The following criteria should 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.
