Winter SEC Academic Honor Roll

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — The University of Tennessee is represented by a department-record 69 student-athletes on the 2022-23 Winter SEC Academic Honor Roll, which was announced Wednesday by league commissioner Greg Sankey.

UT winter sports teams collectively improved their overall total by 12 over the 57 who made the honor roll last year. Women’s swimming and diving led the way with 29 making the list for the second season in a row. The men’s swimming and diving team followed with 23 members earning academic honors after 20 were on the list in 2021-22.  Men’s basketball increased its total to nine, while women’s basketball was up one to eight this season.

A total of 742 student-athletes were named to the 2022-23 Winter SEC Academic Honor Roll. It includes the sports of basketball, equestrian, gymnastics and swimming & diving. It is based on grades from the 2022 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 SEC 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 baccalaureate degree at the nominating institution.
