Fall athletes make the grade


A total of 54 UGA student-athletes from three fall sports programs—football, volleyball and women’s soccer—were named to the 2009 Fall Southeastern Conference Academic Honor Roll. Georgia ranked second out of the 12 SEC institutions in total honorees, behind only the University of South Carolina, which had 78. Only student-athletes who compete in fall sports are eligible for the Fall SEC Honor Roll, which is based on grades from the 2009 spring, summer and fall terms. Criteria include a minimum 3.0 GPA for either the preceding academic year (two semesters) or a cumulative grade point average of 3.0. To be considered, a student-athlete must have successfully completed 24 semester hours of non-remedial academic credit toward a baccalaureate degree.
