UTSA sees record number of student-athletes land on Southland Commissioner's Honor Roll

Print RSS
FRISCO — More than 900 student‐athletes were named to the Southland Conference Commissioner’s Spring Academic Honor Roll, the league office announced on Thursday.

The 953 student‐athletes named to the list breaks last year’s record as the longest honor roll in conference history. There are 12 Southland Student‐Athletes of the Year, four Players of the Year and a total of 143 student‐athletes with perfect 4.0 GPAs. The honor roll includes student-athletes that participated in baseball, men’s and women’s basketball, men’s and women’s golf, softball, men’s and women’s tennis and men’s and women’s indoor and outdoor track & field this past spring.

UTSA saw 88 student-athletes named to the honor roll, which was tied with Southeastern Louisiana for the third-most in the league, and that easily eclipsed the athletics department's previous mark of 64 set a year ago. Nine of the Roadrunners that appear on the honor roll posted perfect 4.0 GPAs during the spring semester.

The women's track & field team led the way with 20 honorees, while men's track & field had 13 and baseball checked in with a dozen.

Senior Devin Gibson, a two‐time Southland Student‐Athlete of the Year, was this year's Most Valuable Player of the Southland Conference Tournament and he guided UTSA to an NCAA Tournament first‐round victory against Alabama State. It was the school’s first-ever win in NCAA Championships competition and the first tournament win by a Southland squad in five years. UTSA's Male Scholar-Athlete of the Year finished his final semester with a 3.14 GPA in information systems.

Sophomore Tyler Brown was the Men’s Tennis Student‐Athlete of the Year and he posted a 3.43 GPA in political science this past spring.

The Southland Conference Commissioner’s Academic Honor Roll acknowledges participants in all sports sponsored by the league and its member institutions. The list is released at the conclusion of the fall and spring semesters and it recognizes student‐athletes who maintained a minimum 3.00 GPA during the semester of their competition season. Student‐athletes, nominated by their respective academic advisors, must have been eligible to compete in a conference sport during the academic year in which the nomination occurs.
