The University of the Incarnate Word had 35 student-athletes – mostly women — named to the Southland Conference Commissioner’s Fall Academic Honor Roll.
Members of the UIW football team were excluded from the list since they did not play an official conference schedule this year, officials said.
Those from UIW on the list took part in men’s and women’s cross country, women’s soccer and volleyball.
Women’s cross country senior Bailey Loyd and sophomore Lindsey Frost posted percent 4.0 GPAs last fall as did volleyball player Sarah Cardenas.
