UT Ties for Most on SEC Winter Honor Roll

April 28, 2011

Tennessee placed 47 student-athletes from the sports of basketball and swimming and diving on the 2010-11 SEC Winter Academic Honor Roll, tying for the conference lead according to a Thursday release from Commissioner Mike Slive.

The Big Orange total was six more than a year ago, and this year's group tied Auburn for conference honors. Georgia was third with 45 recipients, followed by Florida and South Carolina at 44 to round out the top five. A total of 395 student-athletes were named.

The 2010-11 Winter SEC Academic Honor Roll is based on grades from the 2010 Spring, Summer and Fall terms, and honors student-athletes from the varsity sports of basketball, bowling, gymnastics, rifle and swimming and diving.

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 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. (5) The student-athlete must have been a member of a varsity team for the sport's entire NCAA Championship segment.
