SAN BRUNO, CA --- With the conclusion of the 2010-11 academic year, the West Coast Conference is glad to announce the 10th annual WCC Commissioner's Honor Roll, which recognizes student-athletes that have balanced athletic success with academic excellence. Last year, 893 student-athletes across the WCC were honored for possessing at least a 3.0 GPA on a 4.0 scale, setting a record-high for the conference. This year, the number grew yet again, as 935 student-athletes garnered honors in the 2010-11 WCC Commissioner's Honor Roll.
"Breaking the all-time record for the third consecutive year is an impressive accomplishment," said WCC Commissioner Jamie Zaninovich. "The continuous increase in Commissioner's Honor Roll recipients over the last few years is a testament to our schools' commitment to developing well-rounded student-athletes that strive for excellence in both athletics and academics."
Only grades earned at WCC institutions may be used in calculating the grade point average for this award. To be considered for this honor, student-athletes must meet the following requirements:
1) Individuals must have earned a varsity letter in a sport which the conference determined a champion in the recently completed academic year.
2) The cumulative grade point average of at least 3.0 must be based on a 4.0 scale.
3) The individuals must have successfully completed an average of at least 12 graded credit hours (non pass-fail hours) per term.
The conference recognizes those on the WCC Commissioner's Honor Roll in three separate categories:
