Bucs Shine On Conference Honor Rolls

Bucs Shine On Conference Honor Rolls

Winter Park, Fla. – Flexing their muscles in the classroom rather than the playing field, Barry University had 94 student-athletes garner Sunshine State Conference Commissioner’s Honor Roll recognition in 2010-11, with 34 coming from the three fall sports and 60 from the seven spring sports.

Women’s soccer led the way with 15 honor roll members, while men’s soccer, who also won the SSC regular season title, led the men’s teams with 13 members. In the spring, rowing placed 11 members on the roll, while the conference-champion baseball team was right behind with 10 on the list. Women’s golf was particularly impressive as six of the seven members of the team made the honor roll.

In the fall, three of the 10 Bucs who made Barry University’s President’s List (see page 6), also made the honor roll during their season (Alicia Guerrero-volleyball; Katrina Molfetta-women’s soccer; Joanna Stewart-women’s soccer). In the spring, an astounding 10 of the 15 President’s List members accomplished the feat during their active season (Chris Carlin-men’s golf; Grace Collins-softball; Alex Decker-baseball; Kisa Duncan-women’s basketball; Anne Fourdraine; women’s golf; Amanda Frontino-women’s basketball; Louise Perulf-women’s golf; Daniel Stapff-men’s golf; Isadora Stapff-women’s golf and Simon Raagaard-men’s tennis).

Daniel Stapff and Grace Collins pulled a remarkable double, compiling a 4.0 GPA, while earning first-team All-America honors during the same semester.

To be eligible for the Commissioner’s Honor Roll, a student-athlete must post a minimum grade point average of 3.20 on a scale of 4.00. Participants in the sports of men's and women's basketball, men's and women's swimming, men's and women's golf, men's and women's tennis, women's rowing, baseball, softball, and men's and women's lacrosse were eligible for the spring honor roll, while men’s and women’s soccer, volleyball and cross country runners were included in the fall.

Having won 76 national championships since the league was founded in 1975, the SSC's student-athletes have also proven to be successful in the classrooms. For the fourth consecutive year, the Sunshine State Conference led all 22 Division II conferences with an Academic Success Rate of 86 percent.
