June 18, 2008

PHILADELPHIA, PA - A total of 102 student-athletes from George Washington University have made the Atlantic 10 Commissioner's Honor Roll for the Spring 2008 semester, as announced by the league office on June 18. The A-10 Commissioner's Honor Roll recognizes its student-athletes who have achieved a 3.5 grade-point-average or higher.

"We are proud of the priority that our student-athletes place upon their academic responsibilities and the effort they put forth to succeed at such a high level in that area," said Karen Ercole, GW's Director of Academic Support Services. "We appreciate that the A-10 recognizes those achievements and congratulate our student-athletes, as well as those at the other A-10 schools, for their excellence in the classroom."

The Colonials' men's and women's soccer, and women's swimming & diving (combined), lacrosse and women's rowing teams had double-digit representatives on the Spring Honor Roll. The women's soccer team led the way with 16 members qualifying for the league honor roll.

The Commissioner's Honor Roll is announced at the end of each semester and consists of student-athletes with GPA's of 3.5 or higher for that semester. Prior to 2004, an annual honor roll was announced consisting of student-athletes with a cumulative 3.0 GPA or higher.
