More than 150 UM scholar-athletes named to PBC Honor Roll

FROM STAFF REPORTS

The University of Montevallo athletic department featured a school record 156 student-athletes named to the 2014-15 Peach Belt Conference Presidential Honor Roll.

The Honor Roll recognizes all student-athletes at the 14 Peach Belt Conference member institutions who had a GPA of 3.0 or higher for the academic year. Each student-athlete will receive a certificate from the Peach Belt Conference office.

The number of Montevallo student-athletes named to the Honor Roll has increased every year since the Falcons joined the Peach Belt Conference prior to the 2009-10 academic year.

The Falcons had an additional 37 student-athletes named to the Honor Roll this year after featuring 119 student-athletes on the list a year ago.

The Falcons featured 65 student-athletes on the Honor Roll following the 2009-10 academic year, their first year as a member of the Peach Belt Conference. Montevallo had 82 student-athletes named to the Honor Roll following the 2010-11 academic year, with 100 student-athletes receiving the honor following the 2011-12 academic year and 102 student-athletes named to the Honor Roll during the 2012-13 academic year.

Volleyball had the highest percentage of team members represented on the Honor Roll, with 92 percent (12-of-13) of its student-athletes on the list.

Women’s Tennis was second with 87 percent (7-of-8) of its roster making the Honor Roll. Women’s Cross Country saw 84 percent (16-of-19) of its roster represented and had the third highest percentage within the department.

Competitive Cheerleading was fourth on the list with 81 percent (17-of-20) of its roster represented, while Men’s Soccer came in fifth within the department with 75 percent (18-of-24) of its student-athletes earning a spot on the Honor Roll.

The Honor Roll has been divided into four groups: Presidential Scholars, Bronze Scholars, Silver Scholars and Gold Scholars. All student-athletes with a GPA from 3.0 to 3.24 are Presidential Scholars while Bronze Scholars are 3.25 to 3.49; Silver 3.50 to 3.74 and Gold Scholars are those with a 3.75 to 4.00.

The 1,607 student-athletes named to the Peach Belt Conference Presidential Honor Roll surpasses the old record of 1,447 set in 2013-14 and gives the conference 1,000 or more honorees for the sixth year in a row.
