UK Has 78 Student-Athletes on SEC First-Year Academic Honor Roll

LEXINGTON, Ky. – Student-athletes at the University of Kentucky combined to earn a total of 78 spots on the Southeastern Conference First-Year Academic Honor Roll, the league announced Wednesday. 
 
Kentucky was fourth overall for having the most student-athletes on the list. UK had the most honorees in the sport of baseball (19), while tying for the top spot in women’s basketball (four) and gymnastics (five).
 
The 2017-18 First-Year Academic Honor Roll is based on grades from the 2017 summer and fall terms, along with the 2018 spring term. A student-athlete must have a 3.0 grade-point average for the entire year to earn a place on the honor roll. 
 
The number of students on the first-year honor roll continues a cascade of good academic news and bodes well for the continued long-term success of UK student-athletes.

  • UK athletes have a composite grade-point average above 3.0 for 12 consecutive semesters
  • UK has never incurred a penalty in the 14-year history of the NCAA Academic Progress Rate
  • UK athletes have broken or tied the school record for graduation rate every year since the NCAA established that statistic in 2005
