Third highest number of honorees in the league

LEXINGTON, Ky. (UK Public Relations) – A total of 101 University of Kentucky student-athletes earned a place on the 2021 Fall Sports Southeastern Conference Academic Honor Roll, announced Tuesday by SEC Commissioner Greg Sankey. UK had the third-highest number of honorees in the league.

The 2022 Fall SEC Academic Honor Roll is based on grades from the 2021 Spring, Summer and Fall terms. UK had 11 representatives from men’s cross country, 13 from women’s cross country, 38 from football, 16 from men’s soccer, 15 from women’s soccer and eight from volleyball.  Among other qualifications, a student-athlete must have a 3.0 grade-point average for the preceding academic year or a cumulative 3.0 GPA in order to be named to the list.

In addition to the academic success, Kentucky teams also had success on the fields of competition in the fall. Men’s soccer had a 15-2-4 record, won the Conference USA tournament title and advanced to the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Tournament before being eliminated by eventual champion Clemson in overtime.  Volleyball was 25-5 and won its fifth-consecutive SEC championship.  Football went 10-3 – only the fourth 10-win season in school history – and capped the season with a win in the Vrbo Citrus Bowl and No. 18/15 national ranking.  Women’s cross country finished third out of 40 teams at the NCAA Regional and the men were ninth out of 39 teams at the regional.

UK’s players on the SEC Honor Roll continues the trend of strong academic news:

In November, it was announced that UK student-athletes broke both school record for Federal Graduation Rate and tied the school record in the NCAA Graduation Success Rate. UK has broken or tied the GSR school record every year since the NCAA began measuring that statistic in 2005.

  1. Including the 2021 winter commencement and last spring’s graduation, 115 Wildcat student-athletes earned degrees during the 2021 calendar year.
  2. In December, 395 Wildcats achieved a GPA of 3.0 or higher for the fall semester, including 107 Cats who reached 4.0 for the semester. That continued UK Athletics’ streak of 19 consecutive semesters with a department-wide GPA of 3.0 or higher.

UK Athletics supports the academic success of its student-athletes through CATS – the first academic center of its kind dedicated solely to serving student-athletes. CATS is an important component of UK’s Student-Athlete Experience division, committed to preparing student-athletes to enter life after UK.
