87 Alabama Student-Athletes Earn Place on SEC First-Year Academic Honor Roll

July 16, 2013

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. - A total of 87 University of Alabama student-athletes were named to the 2013 Southeastern Conference First-Year Academic Honor Roll, SEC Commissioner Mike Slive announced this week.

Alabama's total ranked second in the league, just behind South Carolina and more than a dozen honors ahead of third place Kentucky.

The Crimson Tide's 2012 BCS National Championship squad tied for first among football teams with South Carolina, with both programs putting 12 honorees on the list. The men's track and field team, which finished 11th at the NCAA Outdoor Championships, and the women's swimming and diving team led their respective sports with 15 and 10 student-athletes, respectively.

The Tide's volleyball and women's golf team both tied for first among their respective sports, with five honors for volleyball and two for women's golf.

The 2013 SEC First-Year Academic Honor Roll is based on grades from the 2012-13 academic calendar year. To earn a place on the honor roll a student-athlete must have a cumulative GPA of 3.00 or above at the nominating institution, be on scholarship or a letter winner, have completed 24 semester hours of non-remedial credit at the nominating institution and have been a member of the varsity team for the sport's entire NCAA championship segment.

The Tide had 42, 48 and 77 student-athletes named to the SEC Fall, Winter and Spring Academic Honor Rolls, respectively, giving Alabama a total of 254 student-athletes on the honor roll for the 2012-13 academic year.
