Twenty-Nine Named to SEC Winter Honor Roll

BATON ROUGE — A total of 29 LSU student-athletes were named to the 2007-2008 Southeastern Conference Winter Academic Honor Roll, SEC Commissioner Mike Slive announced on Wednesday.

The men’s and women’s swimming and diving teams led the way with 20 members on the Honor Roll, including 10 men and 10 women. Christoph Lubenau highlighted the members of the swimming team to earn the honor after the junior finance major was an honorable mention All-America selection at the 2008 NCAA Championships.

Six members of the nationally ranked gymnastics team made the list, including SEC Gymnast of the Year Ashley Clare-Kearney, a senior English major. The women’s basketball team, which advanced to the NCAA Final Four for the fifth-straight season, had two members on the honor roll, including senior starter Ashley Thomas, a marketing major. Greg Terrebonne was the men’s basketball team’s only selection.

A total of 367 student-athletes were named to the Winter Honor Roll. Kentucky topped the list with 53 student-athletes on the winter academic roster. Florida was next with 48 honorees. Georgia and Alabama were next in line with 44 and 42 student-athletes honored, respectively.

The 2007-08 SEC Winter Academic Honor Roll is based on grades from the 2007 Spring, Summer and Fall terms. A student-athlete must have a grade point average of 3.00 or above for either the preceding academic year or have a cumulative GPA of 3.00 or above. Prior to being nominated, a student-athlete must have successfully completed 24 hours of non-remedial academic credit toward a degree and must have been a member of a varsity team for the sport’s entire NCAA Championship segment.
