Gamecocks Post Record Number to SEC's Spring Academic Honor Roll

The department's 135 honorees breaks a nine-year old record

COLUMBIA, S.C. – The 2021 Spring SEC Academic Honor Roll was announced on Thursday by commissioner Greg Sankey. South Carolina had 135 student-athletes across six sports make the list, the second-highest total in the conference. It shatters the department record of 121 honorees, set back in 2012.
In total, 1,615 student-athletes made the list. The 2021 Spring SEC Academic Honor Roll includes the conference-sponsored sports of baseball, golf, softball, tennis and track & field as well as non-sponsored sports like beach volleyball, rowing and lacrosse. It is based on grades from the 2020 Summer, 2020 Fall and 2021 Spring terms.
The Athletics Department concluded the Spring 2021 semester with a departmental grade point average (GPA) of 3.369, the department’s third-highest GPA in history and the 29th-consecutive semester with a departmental GPA above 3.0. During the spring semester, 16 of 18 Gamecock teams earned a GPA of 3.0 or better.
Beach volleyball (3.798) earned the highest team mark among programs in-season during the spring. Also highlighting the spring sport accomplishments was women’s tennis (3.736) earning its fourth-highest team GPA on record.
“Our student-athletes continue to do outstanding work in the classroom,” said Athletics Director Ray Tanner. “Twenty-nine straight semesters of a departmental 3.0 GPA or better is an extraordinary achievement. I want to thank our Dodie Academic staff for their work in helping our student-athletes along the way. This is a great team effort.”
The department named 95 student-athletes to the President’s List for earning a 4.0, 179 student-athletes to the Dean’s List (3.5) and 441 to the Athletic Director’s Honor Roll (3.0).
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 will 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.
