BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – With 98 students making the 2014-15 First-Year Southeastern Conference Academic Honor Roll, South Carolina tops the league’s listing for the eighth-consecutive year.

The Gamecocks led the way, followed by Kentucky’s 83 and Alabama’s 79. A total of 822 student-athletes were named to the 2014-15 First-Year SEC Academic Honor Roll, Wednesday by SEC Commissioner Greg Sankey. 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.
