A total of 69 Lamar University student-athletes were named to the Southland Conference Commissioner’s Academic Honor Roll for the fall semester, the SLC office announced Wednesday. Fourteen of those student-athletes maintained a perfect 4.0 GPA during the semester.

The fall honor roll consists of student-athletes from men’s and women’s cross country, football, women’s soccer and women’s volleyball.

  The LU football team led the way in the fall with 33 student-athletes on the honor roll, followed by the Southland Conference champion women’s soccer team with 17. The Southland Conference champion men’s cross country team had seven student-athletes on the list, as did the LU women’s volleyball team. The LU women’s cross country team had five student-athletes named to the honor roll.

  The football and women’s volleyball teams each boast of four student-athletes with a 4.0 GPA. The women’s soccer team had three student-athletes with a 4.0 GPA. Men’s cross country saw two of its student-athletes earn a 4.0 GPA, while the women’s cross country squad had one student-athlete post a 4.0.
