Lee Spencer CupThe University of Arkansas is committed to the enrichment of its student-athletes’ lives. These areas include: academic excellence, athletic excellence, personal development, career development and service. Through the creation of the Greg and Hannah Lee Student Development Endowment, the University of Arkansas Department of Intercollegiate Athletics has established the LEE SPENCER CUP. This award will be presented annually to the team that demonstrates the commitment, character, and integrity and who earns the most points for the five commitment areas which reflect the way Lee Spencer lived. Teams earn points by participating in Life Skills programs. Each month, the total earned points are updated and the teams are arranged in rank order. At the end of the academic year (fall through spring), the team with the most points is declared the winner and will be presented the Lee Spencer Cup by Greg and Hannah Lee along with Vice Chancellor and Director of Athletics Jeff Long at a home football game.

LEE SPENCER CUP RULES AND SCORINGThe Lee Spencer Cup is a way for the University of Arkansas student-athletes to be rewarded for what they are already doing as well as challenging their fellow student-athletes to become even more involved. The categories will be based upon the areas that define the athletic experience at the U of A. It is the responsibility of the SAAC members and individuals on the team to track team participation in the Lee Spencer Cup competition and turn in the appropriate forms so their points may be officially counted. There will be forms available for each category, and they should be filled out by the student-athletes from each team. The Lee Spencer Cup competition will always begin on the first day of fall semester classes and end on Dead Day of the spring semester. Points will be awarded during the aforementioned time period which coincides with the academic school year.The following is a list of the categories used and the scoring within each category:ACADEMIC EXCELLENCEThe purpose is to reward academic achievement.Highest Male Team GPA per term-25 ptsHighest Female Team GPA per term-25 ptsGPA Points (per term) – >3.5 or higher 100 pts 3.0-3.49 75 pts 2.5-2.99 50 pts 2.0-2.49 25 ptsATHLETIC EXCELLENCERecognizes the athletic achievements of our athletic teams.

All teams will get 2 Code Reds during their season (with the exception of football, men’s basketball, and men’s and women’s golf…see below)* Football and Men’s Basketball are big revenue sports and do not require the fan support that other smaller teams may need* Both golf teams will not have Code Reds because there are no home golf matches to attend.* Both Track teams will get 2 Code Reds each but one must be used during the indoor season and the other during the outdoor season. This means that the men get one to be used in indoor and one in outdoor. The women will have the same.
