HIGH POINT, N.C. – Conference Carolinas has released the 2012 Spring Presidential Honor Roll list. King
College was the best represented member school with a league-high 190 student-athletes
named to the prestigious list.
Conference Carolinas is proud to announce that 1,516 student-athletes have been named
to the 2012 Spring Presidential Honor Roll. Each institution within the conference
has emphasized their commitment to academic importance as they have continued to have
student-athletes achieve a grade point average of 3.2 or higher (on a 4.0 scale) at
each of their institutions to achieve this honor.
The Conference Carolinas Presidential Honor Roll is awarded twice a year covering
each of the fall and spring academic semesters and is based on meeting the criteria
at the end of the previous semester. For the 2012 spring semester, King College led
all league members with 190 qualifying student-athletes. Schools that followed included,
Lees-McRae College with 162, Queens University of Charlotte with 154, and Pfeiffer
University with 147 student-athletes.
Of the 24 King athletic teams, Tornado Baseball led all programs with 19 recipients
of the honor followed closely by Women’s Track Field (14) and three programs with
13 honorees (Men’s Track Field, Men’s Soccer, Women’s Soccer).
Over the course of the 2011-12 academic year, five King student-athletes have been
named Scholar-Athlete of the Year for their respective sport. Cross Country runner
Danielle Alfano was dawned the honor after the fall season while Eddie Piccinini of
the men’s basketball team earned the award following the winter season. On May 16
three more Tornado student-athletes were named Spring Scholar-Athletes of the Year
for their respective sports when Hannah Witt (Women’s Track Field), Jose Avila (Men’s
Tennis), and Josh Bamberger (Men’s Golf) each earned the honor.
Conference Carolinas continues to emphasize “Academics and Athletics Working Together”
as each school strives to grow their Presidential Honor Roll each and every year.
The new Presidential Honor Roll recognizes student-athletes who have earned a 3.20
grade-point average (up from 3.00 in previous years) on a 4.00 scale for the semester
and includes freshman and transfer student athletes (that have participated in either
a conference or non-conference sponsored sport).
Conference Carolinas is a NCAA Division II athletic conference currently made up of
12 teams from North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee. These institutions consist
of: Barton College, Belmont Abbey College, Coker College, Converse College, Erskine
College, King College, Lees-McRae College, Limestone College, Mount Olive College,
North Greenville University, Pfeiffer University, and Queens University of Charlotte.
