LEXINGTON, Ky. – Student-athletes from all of Kentucky's winter teams combined to earn a total of 49 spots on the Southeastern Conference Spring Academic Honor Roll, the league announced Wednesday.

A total of 667 student-athletes were named to the 2015-16 Winter SEC Academic Honor Roll. The 2015-16 Winter SEC Academic Honor Roll is based on grades form the 2015 spring, summer and fall terms.

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.
