ARLINGTON, Texas - The Southland Conference office released its 2003 Spring Academic Honor Roll on Wednesday and The University of Texas at Arlington was well represented. The team comprised of 563 student-athletes from 11 conference schools with UTA landing 59 student-athletes on the honor roll. The SLC Honor Roll recognizes student-athletes who competed in league championship sports during the winter and spring semesters and maintained a 3.0 semester grade point average while enrolled in a minimum of 12 semester hours. Each SLC institution is responsible for selecting the student-athletes in baseball, softball, and men's and women's sports in basketball, tennis, golf and indoor and outdoor track and field to be placed on the spring roll.

The honor roll is an addition to the SLC academic awards program, reinstated at the beginning of the 2002-03 academic year under a new name and with new standards after existing for some time as the Commissioner's List.

Lamar, Southwest Texas and Texas-San Antonio led all schools with 63 honorees each. McNeese State was closed behind with 62 while UTA has 59. Sam Houston State followed with 53 athletes, followed by Northwestern State with 52, 50 from Nicholls State, 48 from Stephen F. Austin and 45 from Southeastern Louisiana. Texas-Pan American, which only competes as an associate member in men's tennis, completes the spring roll with five student-athletes.

UTA leads the way with 22 of the 59 student-athletes having collected all-academic and/or all-conference accolades during the year. Among the honorees are three student-athletes of the year: Josh Daniel for men's basketball, David Corrie for men's tennis and Jordan Krantz for men's golf. Also included are AnneMarie Lenze as the SLC's player and newcomer of the year in women's tennis, Anete Rozkalne as the SLC's freshman of the year in women's tennis and Beverly Rowan as the SLC's utility player of the year in softball.
