2022-23 Atlantic Commissioner 10 Honor Roll: 307 Hawks

ATLANTA, United States. ~ On Monday, the Atlantic 10 conference revealed a record 3,953 student-athletes on the Commissioner’s Honor Roll for 2022-23. Highest total in the league and the fourth consecutive year of more than 3,500 winners. 307 Hawks made the Commissioner’s Honor Roll, including 16 with 4.0 GPA. It exceeds the 3,845 winners of 2020-21. 327 student-athletes had a GPA of 4.0 this year, representing more than eight percent of winners and nearly 22 per school at the 15 member universities. Two-thirds, or 2,609 student-athletes, had a GPA of 3.5 or higher in 2022-23. Each school earned an average of 263.5 honors. “It’s amazing that once again our student-athletes have set a record for Commissioner’s Honor Roll recognition,” said A-10 Commissioner Bernadette V. McGlade.

For the Commissioner’s Honor Roll, a student-athlete in an Atlantic 10 sponsored sport at a full member institution must have a fall and spring grade point average of 3.0 or higher. Freshmen and graduates can earn the honor. In each of the past six years, the league has honored nearly 3,000 student-athletes. Massachusetts had 371, Davidson 318. Fordham, Saint Joseph’s and George Mason rounded out the top five. 16.5% (653 winners) are freshmen, 22.4% (886 in total) sophomores, 21.0% (832 in total) juniors and 30.4% (1,202 in total) of senior citizens. 338 graduate students, or 8.5%, were honored. The totals and percentages for seniors and graduates increased from last year.

The Atlantic 10 conference prioritizes the education and success of student-athletes. I commend our 3,953 student-athletes and 15 schools for their dedication and accomplishments. Cross country/athletics (493 accolades), soccer (308) and rowing (300) were the three most popular women’s sports. Men’s cross country/track and field (384), soccer (312) and baseball (308) were the top three male sports. The addition of Loyola Chicago and the 22nd championship sport in men’s lacrosse contributed to the increase. Men’s lacrosse has 56.2% honor roll students.
