FAYETTEVILLE — A total of 43 Razorback freshmen student-athletes earned selection to the 2010 Southeastern Conference Freshman Academic Honor Roll, the league office announced this week. Arkansas saw an increase of freshman academic honor roll selections in 2010 after 39 Razorback freshmen were honored in 2009.
The Razorback’s softball program placed six team members on the honor roll. The freshmen representing Arkansas softball were Courtney Breault, Stephanie Brewer, Morgan Clark, Chelsea Cohen, Hope McLemore and Brea Van De Pol.
“We are proud of the growing number of Razorback freshman student-athletes who have earned selection to the SEC Freshman Academic Honor Roll,” Vice Chancellor and Director of Athletics Jeff Long said. “With the academic and athletic demands placed on student-athletes, it is important that we continue to provide them with the resources to allow them to succeed in all aspects of their collegiate careers. The first-year student-athletes named to this list have demonstrated the ability to successfully balance those responsibilities, progress towards graduation and represent the Razorbacks in their given sports.”
Of the student-athletes selected, 11 are kinesiology majors, nine are studying business and three are arts and science majors. There were 18 different majors represented.
Of the freshmen selected, Breault was also honored by the SEC for her on-field performance as she was named to the SEC All-Freshman team hitting .313 for the season against league opponents.
To be selected, a student-athlete must have a cumulative GPA of 3.00 or above at the institution, be on scholarship or a letterwinner, have completed 24 semester hours of non-remedial credit and have been a member of the varsity team for the sport’s entire NCAA Championship season.
