South Carolina placed 97 student-athletes on the SEC's First-Year Academic Honor Roll, the conference office announced Monday, the most in the league for the sixth-straight year.

The 97 student-athletes on this year’s listing matches last year’s total and was 10 better than Alabama’s 87 in second place. Kentucky’s 73 student-athletes on the first-year listing stood third.

Each student-athlete must (1) have a cumulative GPA of 3.00 or above at the nominating institution; (2) be on scholarship or a letter winner; (3) have completed 24 semester hours of non-remedial credit at the nominating institution; and (4) have been a member of the varsity team for the sport’s entire NCAA Championship segment. The 2012-13 SEC First-Year Academic Honor Roll is based on grades from the 2012-13 academic calendar.

A total of 762 student-athletes were named to the 2012-13 SEC First-Year Academic Honor Roll on Monday, bringing the year’s total to 3,116 student-athletes around the league who earned Academic Honor Roll recognition in 2012-13.
