The squad also boasted 12 student-athletes on the spring honor roll. The Razorback softball team was represented by Jessica Bachkora, Amanda Caldwell, Rebecca Carden, Kim Jones, Elizabeth McGuirt, Victoria Mort, Miranda Mounts, Brittany Robison, Jessica Robison, Sandra Smith, Jessica Waddle and Lindsey Wells.

"We continue to challenge our student-athletes on the field and in the classroom and they continue to respond," said Vice Chancellor and Director of Athletics Jeff Long. "Nearly all of the honorees were on teams that advanced to postseason competition. These student-athletes balance high athletic expectations with demanding academic challenges and they succeed at the highest level. We are very proud of their accomplishments."
