BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – Student-athletes at the University of Kentucky combined to earn a total of 78 spots on the Southeastern Conference Winter Sports Academic Honor Roll, most of any school in the SEC, the league announced Wednesday. 

In addition, UK had the most honorees in the sports of women’s basketball (10), gymnastics (14) and women’s swimming and diving (25). The men’s swimming and diving squad was second in that sport with 19 qualifiers.

The Winter Sports Academic Honor Roll is based on grades from the 2018 spring, summer and fall terms. Among other qualifications, a student-athlete must have a 3.0 grade-point average for the entire year (or entire career) to earn a place on the honor roll and completed at least one full academic year at the institution.  

The number of students on the honor roll continues a cascade of good academic news and bodes well for the continued long-term success of UK student-athletes.

  • UK athletes have a composite grade-point average above 3.0 for 13 consecutive semesters
  • UK has never incurred a penalty in the 14-year history of the NCAA Academic Progress Rate
  • UK athletes have broken or tied the school record for graduation rate every year since the NCAA established that statistic in 2005
