"It is a testament to our philosophy to place a high priority on academic excellence as well as athletic achievements," said Pete Carlon, director of athletics. "The academic standards and demands at UT Arlington provide our student-athletes a quality education. I am pleased with our student-athletes' hard work in the classroom and on the field."

Women's track and field garnered the most recipients with 15, including all-conference runner Jodi Hulett, a sophomore from Arlington.

Led by junior hurdler Coby Morrison, men's track and field landed 12 on the roll. Baseball had 11 on the list while softball had nine named to the squad including all-academic all-SLC first-team members Lacey Leadbetter and Laura Jones.

In all, 628 student-athletes from the 11 member institutions were honored by the conference.

Presented by CapitalOne Bank, the honor roll recognizes student-athletes who competed in league championship sports during the spring semester and maintained a 3.0 semester grade-point average while enrolled in a minimum of 12 semester hours. Each Southland institution is responsible in selecting the student-athletes for the spring roll.
