SAC Commissioner’s Honor Roll Show 349 Lenoir-Rhyne Student-Athletes

The South Atlantic Conference announced that 2,886 student-athletes, spanning each of the Conference’s 13 member institutions, were named to the 2022-23 SAC Commissioner’s Honor Roll and Lenoir-Rhyne placed a school record 349 student-athletes on the list.

To be eligible for inclusion on the SAC Commissioner’s Honor Roll, student-athletes must have competed in a sponsored championship sport and maintained a GPA of 3.30 or higher throughout the academic year.

“We are honored to recognize a record number of our student-athletes for their outstanding academic accomplishments,” said SAC Commissioner Patrick Britz. “This is the fourth consecutive year that we have had more than 2,000 student-athletes be recognized
for their outstanding achievements in the classroom, which is a testament to the high priority our member institutions continue to place on academic success. On behalf of the entire South Atlantic Conference, I want to express how extremely proud we are of the hard work and dedication these student-athletes put in the classroom and in their athletic arena.”
