Volleyball Features Eight on SEC Academic Honor Roll

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – The LSU Volleyball team had eight players featured on the Fall 2020 SEC Honor Roll when the league announced it Tuesday morning.

LSU Volleyball’s Anita Anwusi (Kinesiology), Jill Bohnet (Mechanical Engineering), Raigen Cianciulli (MBA), Whitney Foreman (Kinesiology), Samarah Hill (Psychology), Allee Morris (Marketing), Karli Rose (Kinesiology) and Emmaline Walters (Information Systems) were all featured on the honor roll.

The 2020 Fall SEC Academic Honor Roll includes the sports of cross country, football, soccer and volleyball. It is based on grades from the 2020 Spring, Summer and Fall terms.

Any student-athlete who participates in a Southeastern Conference championship sport or a student-athlete who participates in a sport listed on his/her institution’s NCAA Sports Sponsorship Form is eligible for nomination to the Academic Honor Roll. The following criteria will be followed: (1) A student-athlete must have a grade point average of 3.00 or above for either the preceding academic year (two semesters or three quarters) or have a cumulative grade point average of 3.00 or above at the nominating institution. (2) If a student-athlete attends summer school, his/her grade point average during the summer academic term must be included in the calculation used to determine eligibility for the Academic Honor Roll. (3) Student-athletes eligible for the Honor Roll include those receiving an athletics scholarship, recipients of an athletics award (i.e., letter winner), and non-scholarship student-athletes who have been on a varsity team for two seasons. (4) Prior to being nominated, a student-athlete must have successfully completed 24 semester or 36 quarter hours of non-remedial academic credit toward a Bachelorette degree at the nominating institution. (5) The student-athlete must have been a member of a varsity team for the sport’s entire NCAA Championship segment.
