FSU places 259 on ACC honor roll

Florida State had 259 student-athletes recognized on the ACC honor roll for the 2018-19 academic year. It’s the third straight year at least 250 Seminoles earned the honor.

The ACC Honor Roll is comprised of student-athletes who participated in a varsity-level sport and registered a grade point average of 3.0 or better for the full academic year. The conference recognized a record 4,769 student-athletes for their hard work in the classroom.

FSU softball’s Meghan King was recognized for the fifth time in her career. Twenty-six other Florida State student-athletes were named to the ACC Honor Roll for the fourth time in their careers.

The men’s basketball team had nine members on the list, which ties a school record. Trent Forrest, Justin Lindner, Will Miles and Harrison Prieto are three-time honorees.

“Our academic success is one of the cornerstones of our program,” said coach Leonard Hamilton. “I am really proud of our guys for their success in the classroom. I’m especially pleased with their progress in the spring semester because we were away from campus so often. The month of March is obviously an important time for our basketball program and our guys navigated their academic work incredibly well during that crucial academic period leading up to final exams.”

The number of athletes on the ACC honor roll has steadily increased since 2010-11 (chart below).
