100 Wildcats Earn a Place on the SEC Fall Sports Academic Honor Roll

LEXINGTON, Ky. – A total of 100 University of Kentucky student-athletes earned a place on the 2020 Fall Sports Southeastern Conference Academic Honor Roll, announced Tuesday by SEC Commissioner Greg Sankey. UK had the second-highest number of honorees in the league. 
 
The 2020 Fall SEC Academic Honor Roll is based on grades from the 2020 Spring, Summer and Fall terms. UK had seven representatives from men’s cross country, 10 from women’s cross country, 37 from football, 19 from men’s soccer, 17 from women’s soccer and 10 from volleyball.  Among other qualifications, a student-athlete must have a 3.0 grade-point average for the preceding academic year or a cumulative 3.0 GPA in order to be named to the list. 
 
In addition to the academic success, Kentucky teams also had success on the fields of competition in the fall – much of which is carrying over to the spring. Volleyball has resumed its season already and has a 10-0 record and No. 3 national ranking.  Men’s soccer resumes this week after having posted a 5-1 mark and being nationally ranked in the fall. The women’s and men’s cross country teams have completed the regular season and are awaiting potential bids to the NCAA Championships.  Football finished its all-SEC regular-season schedule with a Senior Night win over South Carolina and a win over No. 24-ranked North Carolina State in the TaxSlayer Gator Bowl.

UK’s players on the SEC Honor Roll continues the trend of strong academic news:
 

  1. In November, it was announced that UK student-athletes broke both school records for NCAA Graduation Success Rate and Federal Graduation Rate. UK has broken or tied the GSR school record every year since the NCAA began measuring that statistic in 2005.
  2. Including the 2020 winter commencement and last spring’s graduation, 98 Wildcat student-athletes earned degrees during the 2020 calendar year.
  3. In December, 380 Wildcats achieved a GPA of 3.0 or higher for the fall semester, including 109 Cats who reached 4.0 for the semester. That continued UK Athletics’ streak of 17 consecutive semesters with a department-wide GPA of 3.0 or higher. 

 
UK Athletics supports the academic success of its student-athletes through CATS – the first academic center of its kind dedicated solely to serving student-athletes. CATS is an important component of UK’s Student-Athlete Experience division, launched as a renewal of the department’s commitment to prepare student-athletes to enter life after UK.
