Georgia Southern had a record 213 student-athletes honored by the Sun Belt Conference for their work in the classroom with the yearly release of the Academic Commissioner’s List and Honor Roll recently by the league.

The 213 total student-athletes includes 122 named to the Commissioner’s List and 91 to the Honor Roll. The number surpasses the 195 student-athletes honored during the 2016-17 academic year. 

Men’s Soccer and Softball tied for the largest number of Eagle student-athletes on the SBC Commissioner’s List with 18 apiece. Football had the most student-athletes on the SBC Honor Roll with 24, while Baseball had the most overall honorees with 32. Women’s Soccer had the most overall honorees among the female sports with 25.

As a league, the Sun Belt Conference added nearly 2,500 student-athletes to the Commissioner’s List and Academic Honor Roll for the 2020-21 school year. Those recognized included 1,373 student-athletes on the Commissioner’s List and 1,018 student-athletes on the Academic Honor Roll list.

The Commissioner’s List honors student-athletes who earned a 3.5 grade point average (GPA) or better during the 2020-21 academic year while the Academic Honor Roll honors those student-athletes who maintained a GPA between 3.00 and 3.49 for the academic year.

“We celebrate the academic achievements of these remarkable student-athletes,” said Sun Belt Commissioner Keith Gill. “We’re extremely proud of their ability to shine at academics while competing in their sports at the highest level.” 

Across the entire Sun Belt Conference, the women’s golf representatives compiled the highest average GPA with a 3.68. The sport had 19 student-athletes named to the Academic Honor Roll, while 65 were named to the Commissioner’s List. For the men’s sports, tennis recorded the highest average GPA at a 3.42.
