King leads Conference Carolinas Presidential Honor Roll members
BRISTOL, Tenn. – Conference Carolinas announced their Spring Presidential Honor Roll on Monday, and King University led the league with 209 members. As a conference, 1,713 student-athletes earned this honor which requires student-athletes to achieve at least a 3.2 grade point average.
King’s 209 members on the team edged Limestone College and Queens University who had 203 and 178 members, respectively. 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 previous semester.
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 3.2 grade point average (up from 3.0 in previous years) on a 4.0 scale for the semester and includes freshman and transfer student athletes (that have participated in either a conference or non-conference sponsored sport).
The Tornado baseball team led the way with 21 members while women’s soccer had 17 and women’s track and field rounded out the top three with 15 members.
