BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – Out of 65 LSU student-athletes, 18 E. J. Ourso College of Business students were named to the 2019 Spring SEC Academic Honor Roll Wednesday by Commissioner Greg Sankey. The Spring accolades recognize the LSU sports of baseball, golf, beach volleyball, tennis and track & field.

LSU’s list includes 11 members of the 2019 NCAA third-place beach volleyball team, members of the Super Regional baseball and softball teams and SEC Champion men’s track & field team.

The 2019 Spring SEC Academic Honor Roll is based on grades posted from the 2018 Summer, 2018 Fall and 2019 Spring terms.

Any student-athlete who participates in an SEC championship sport or is 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 is applied for nomination:

  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. Before 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.
