BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – For the fifth-consecutive fall, South Carolina leads the way with a school-record 79 student-athletes on the 2010 SEC Fall Academic Honor Roll, the league office released today. A total of 526 student-athletes were named to the 2010 Fall SEC Academic Honor Roll, Wednesdayby SEC Commissioner Mike Slive.

The University of South Carolina topped the list with 79 student-athletes on the fall academic roster. The University of Georgia was next with 47 fall student-athletes honored while the University of Florida and Vanderbilt University each had 46.

The 2010 Fall SEC Academic Honor Roll is based on grades from the 2010 Spring, Summer and Fall terms.

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.

South Carolina’s honorees broke down to 31 football players, 19 men’s soccer players, 19 women’s soccer players and 10 women’s volleyball players. Of volleyball’s active roster, every eligible student-athlete made this honor roll. The student-athletes are listed below.
