CHARLOTTE — High Point University had a league-best 77.83 percent of its 230 student-athletes recognized on the Big South Presidential Honor Roll, the conference announced Wednesday (July 26).

A school-record 179 HPU student-athletes earned the conference accolades. The 77.83 percentage, which is also a school record, led High Point to the top of the Big South rankings for a third-consecutive year.

High Point was one of two conference schools with over 70 percent of its student-athletes listed, with UNC Asheville coming in second with 72.11 percent of its 190 student-athletes. Overall seven schools surpassed the 60 percent threshold and the conference as a whole had a league-best 59.75 percent (1,784 out of 2,986 student-athletes) recognized.

“I’d like to congratulate our student-athletes on achieving the first-place ranking in the Big South Presidential Honor Roll for the third-straight year,” HPU athletic director Dan Hauser said. “Our department puts an emphasis on academic achievement and we are proud to say that we have reached record highs in both the number and the percentage of student-athletes recognized on the conference honor roll. These achievements are a testament to the outstanding student-athletes and faculty we have at High Point University.”

To qualify for the Big South Presidential Honor Roll, a student-athlete must carry a cumulative 3.0 GPA for the full academic year (2015-16).

The list does not include the men’s lacrosse program, which is a member of the Southern Conference. A total of 33 members of the team were named to the SoCon Honor Roll, released on July 6. That ledger also recognizes student-athletes with a 3.0 or above.
