NEWPORT NEWS, Va. - The Atlantic 10 Conference announced on Friday that a new record number of 1,637 student-athletes achieved Commissioner's Honor Roll distinction for the Fall 2012 semester, including 102 student-athletes from the George Washington University.

To be listed on the Commissioner's Honor Roll, a student-athlete in an Atlantic 10-sponsored sport must have a 3.5 GPA or better (on a 4.0 scale).

"Our Honor Roll numbers are impressive and our student-athletes should be commended on their dedication," Commissioner Bernadette V. McGlade stated.

The 1,637 honorees eclipsed the previous record of 1,369 set last spring semester. It also is the fourth straight semester that the total number of honorees has surpassed the previous semester.

At GW, the 102 student-athletes recognized in the university's 16 Atlantic 10 sports represent an increase of nearly 15 percent from the Spring 2012 semester (89) and over a 20 percent increase from last fall (84).
