166 Lees-McRae College student-athletes landed spots on the Conference Carolinas Presidential Honor Roll for the spring semester the league office announced Wednesday. Leading the way were the men’s and women’s soccer teams who had 22 and 20 honorees, respectively.
Each semester, recognition is given to student-athletes who achieve a grade-point average of 3.2 or higher on a 4-point scale. All student-athletes, including underclassmen, transfers, and those who play non-conference sponsored sports, are eligible for the recognition as long as they participated during the semester in question.
The Conference Carolinas Presidential Honor Roll is awarded twice each school year, recognizing the scholastic achievements of student-athletes for each semester.
