HIGH POINT, N.C. --- Lees-McRae College is pleased to announce that 93 of its student-athletes (including eight dual-sport athletes) have been named to the 2011 Conference Carolinas Spring Presidential Honor Roll.

Lees-McRae and Conference Carolinas continue to emphasize "Academics and Athletics Working Together." The Presidential Honor Roll recognizes student-athletes who have earned a 3.20 grade-point average 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).

Leading the way for the Bobcats was the cycling program, which featured 22 student-athletes with a 3.20 semester GPA or better. The women's soccer program placed 11 students on the honor roll, while women's lacrosse and women's track and field each had 10.

Conference Carolinas is a premier NCAA Division II athletics conference made up of 11 schools from North Carolina and South Carolina.
