HIGH POINT, N.C. --- The Lees-McRae athletic
department is proud to announce that 142 student-athletes have been
named to the 2014 Conference Carolinas Spring Presidential Honor
Roll, the conference announced Wednesday morning.
Conference Carolinas continues to emphasize “Academics and
Athletics Working Together” as each school strives to grow
their Presidential Honor Roll each and every year. The
Presidential Honor Roll recognizes student-athletes who have earned
a 3.20 grade-point average (up from 3.00 in previous years) on a
4.00 scale for the semester and includes freshman and transfer
student athletes (that have participated in either a
conference or non-conference sponsored sport).
In regards to the outstanding number of student-athletes
represented in the 2014 Spring Presidential Honor Roll,
Commissioner Alan Patterson stated, “The large number of
student-athletes comprising the Presidential Honor Roll is pleasing
but not surprising. Conference Carolinas athletics gives more
than lip service to the concept of academics and athletics working
together. Our members live this model and the “fifth
quarter” success of educating athletes prepared for
today’s play and tomorrow’s success is an intentional
and rewarding outcome.”
The Conference Carolinas Presidential Honor Roll is awarded
twice a year covering each of the fall and spring academic
semesters and is based on meeting the criteria at the end of the
LMC women’s soccer led all Bobcat squads with 20
representatives while men’s cycling had 18 members.
12 LMC teams had seven or more representatives, including 11
from men’s soccer.
Both basketball teams, men’s track & field,
men’s lacrosse, women’s cycling and women’s
volleyball had seven student-athletes on the list each.
For the 2014 spring season, King University led all league
members with 205 student-athletes represented. They were followed
closely by Limestone College with 192 honorees.
