SAN BRUNO, Calif. -- Nearly one-half of all Saint Mary's student-athletes were honored recently by the West Coast Conference as part of the league's 13th annual WCC Commissioner's Honor Roll, which recognizes student-athletes that successfully balance athletic success with academic excellence.

A total of 130 Gaels were recently recognized as having a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or higher while lettering in their sport at SMC.  Of that number, 16 maintain at least a 3.75.  Rowing led the way with 25 selections, while men and women's soccer registered 17 apiece.  Softball recognized 14 student-athletes and volleyball had 12 of its 14 athletes make the listings.

For the third consecutive year, over 1,000 WCC student-athletes garnered honors on the Commissioner's Honor Roll for possessing at least a 3.0 GPA on a 4.0 scale. With the addition of the University of the Pacific, more than 1,200 student-athletes qualified for recognition establishing a new conference record.

Only grades earned at WCC institutions may be used in calculating the grade point average for this award. To be considered for this honor, student-athletes must meet the following requirements:

1) Individuals must have earned a varsity letter in a sport which the conference determined a champion in the recently completed academic year.

2) The cumulative grade point average of at least 3.0 must be based on a 4.0 scale.

3) The individuals must have successfully completed an average of at least 12 graded credit hours (non pass-fail hours) per term.

The conference recognizes those on the WCC Commissioner's Honor Roll in three separate categories:

4.00-3.75 - Gold Honors
3.74-3.50 - Silver Honors
3.49-3.00 - Bronze Honors
