UIW student-athletes top conference’s Honor Roll

Headshot of Graphic UIW Graphic CardinalThe University of the Incarnate Word placed more student-athletes on the Lone Star Conference Commissioner’s Honor Roll for the 2010-11 academic year than any other school in the conference.

UIW, one of the newest members of the Lone Star Conference, had 123 student-athletes among 1,027 qualifying. (The conference does not have water sports: synchronized swimming, men’s and women’s swimming and diving)

“This year’s release marks a new beginning for the Commissioner’s Honor Roll program,” Assistant Commissioner Melanie Robotham  said. “Previously, the honorees qualified by cumulative grade point average and were announced by sport at the end of each respective season, but this year’s version is being announced after the conclusion of the spring academic term and student-athletes must qualify based on GPA solely for the current academic year. As such, this year’s listing truly reflects those student-athletes most deserving of recognition for academic achievement during the 2010-11 academic year.”

To be eligible for the Commissioner’s Honor Roll, student-athletes must have a minimum 3.30 GPA for the current academic year and be active on the roster.
