South Carolina Leads Conference’s First-Year Academic Honor Roll

127 Gamecocks were honored, marking the 12th time in the last 15 years the department led the SEC

COLUMBIA, S.C. – The SEC’s First-Year Academic Honor Roll was announced on Tuesday by commissioner Greg Sankey. South Carolina’s 127 student-athletes lapped the field, leading the conference for the 12th time in the last 15 years. It is also the fourth school year in a row with triple-digit honorees and is the second-highest single-year total in the department’s history.
In total, 1,130 student-athletes made the list. First year student-athletes in all sports may be named to the Honor Roll at the conclusion of their first full academic year in residence (spring, fall and summer 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.
Women’s soccer (3.814) earned the highest team GPA, while beach volleyball (3.798) earned the second-highest team mark within the department.
Four teams earned their second-highest GPA to date, including women’s basketball (3.412), equestrian (3.615), women’s soccer (3.814), and women’s swimming & diving (3.735). Additionally, men’s soccer (3.612) and beach volleyball (3.798) earned their third-highest team GPA on record while football (3.022) and women’s tennis (3.736) earned their fourth-highest team GPA on record.
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. (5) The student-athlete must have been a member of a varsity team for the sport’s entire NCAA Championship segment.
