FAYETTEVILLE – The University of Arkansas men’s track and field team placed 14 student-athletes on the 2010 Southeastern Conference Spring Academic Honor Roll headlining a list of 53 total Razorback student-athlete honorees recognized by the league recently.

The softball team, under the direction of first-year head coach Mike Larabee, earned 28 wins and hosted the 2010 SEC Softball Tournament at Bogle Park. 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.

The rest of the team is comprised of seven women’s track and field team members, six student-athletes from baseball, five from women’s tennis, four from women’s golf, three from men’s tennis and two from men’s golf.

"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."

Student-athletes must meet five criteria including having a grade point average for the preceding year or as a cumulative average, summer school must be including in the calculation if the student-athlete attends, eligibility for the honor roll is open to scholarship and non-scholarship student-athlete, student-athletes must have completed 24 semester or 36 quarter hours of non-remedial academic credit toward a degree and the student-athlete must have been a member of a varsity team for the sport’s entire NCAA Championship season.
