94 Wildcats on Fall SEC Academic Honor Roll

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – A total of 94 University of Kentucky student-athletes earned a place on the 2022 Fall Southeastern Conference Academic Honor Roll, announced Thursday by SEC Commissioner Greg Sankey. UK had the fourth-highest number of honorees in the league.

The 2022 Fall SEC Academic Honor Roll is based on grades from the 2022 Spring, Summer and Fall terms. UK had 11 representatives from men’s cross country, 12 from women’s cross country, 34 from football, 15 from men’s soccer, 13 from women’s soccer and nine from volleyball. Among other qualifications, a student-athlete must have a 3.0 grade-point average for the preceding academic year or a cumulative 3.0 GPA in order to be named to the list.

Earlier this year, UK Athletics announced that the 2022 fall semester was the 21st straight for the department with a 3.0 cumulative grade-point average. Wildcat scholarship student-athletes combined to achieve a GPA of 3.243 in the fall of 2022. In November, UK student-athletes tied the school record in the NCAA’s Graduation Success Rate with a mark of 92 percent. UK has broken or tied the GSR school record every year since the NCAA began measuring that statistic in 2005. UK’s 92 percent is three points above the Division I national average of 89 percent. Including the 2022 spring and fall commencements, 156 Wildcat student-athletes earned degrees or certifications during the calendar year – 14 of whom were master’s degree graduates.

In addition to the academic success, Kentucky teams also had success on the fields and courts of competition in the fall. Men’s soccer had a 15-1-5 record, won the Sun Belt regular-season and tournament titles and advanced to the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Tournament. Volleyball went 22-8 and won its sixth-consecutive SEC championship, advancing to the NCAA Tournament Sweet 16. Football went 7-6 and extended its school-record streak of seven straight bowl appearances. Women’s cross country finished sixth out of 32 teams at the NCAA Regional and the men were 10th out of 32 teams at the regional. Women’s soccer went 7-1-0 in non-conference play, marking its best non-conference record since 2015.
