Bama leads SEC (2nd year in a row) with 127

3 posts in this topic

From Alabama Athletics:

For the second year in a row, the University of Alabama led the Southeastern Conference's Spring Academic Honor Roll with 127 honors the league office announced Monday. The Crimson Tide’s rowing team led the way with 36 honors, tied for the most of any team in the SEC this spring.

The Tide was second in the SEC among baseball teams with 16 players on the honor roll while the men’s golf team (seven) was tied for second and softball (14) was tied for third in the league for their respective sports. Mike Oczypok, who graduated with his MBA in May, led the baseball players, while 2017 Southern Amateur Champion Jonathan Hardee led men’s golf and Academic All-Americans Chandler Dare and Sydney Littlejohn paced the softball team.

Academic All-American Alex Gholston was one of 25 members of the women’s track and field team to earn the conference accolade, while Academic All-District honoree Payton Ballard was one of 14 members of the men’s track and field squad to earn the honor.

The women's tennis team tallied five honors, led by the two-time NCAA champion Erin Routliffe, while men's tennis totaled four honors led by 2017 ITA Player to Watch Mazen Osama.

To earn a place on the honor roll, a student must earn a 3.0 or better grade point average for either the preceding academic year or their career and be a sophomore or better in academic standing. The spring list honors those student-athletes that participate in baseball, beach volleyball, men's and women's golf, lacrosse, rowing, softball, men's and women's tennis and men's and women's track and field. A total of 1,245 SEC student-athletes earned the honor during the spring of 2017.

So far this season, Alabama has placed 270 students on the SEC Fall, Winter and Spring honor rolls. Additional names will be added to the Tide's tally when the first-year list comes out later this week.

      What could a metal detector do to save a kid?

      It’s also a court house where people do their job. That’s all school is. A place kids do their job.    Im not saying that is the idea we should use but twisting it that way is childish. It’s just like a kid to demand the protection and when you give it he doesn’t like it.

      They played a bad game. Should have won 4-0. Walks, errors, wasted opportunities, and the umpiring could have been better.

      Also sounds like a bank. And a jewelry store. And a movie set. And a courthouse. And a sporting event. And a nursing home. And  Congress.
