Huskers Earn 29 Spots on Big 12 Honor Roll

The Nebraska baseball team had an impressive 29 student-athletes named to the Big 12 Commissioner's Honor Roll for the fall 2010 semester. The Big 12 Commissioner's Honor Roll recognizes student-athletes who record a 3.0 GPA or higher each term.

Nebraska had a total of 358 honorees across its 23 varsity sports, including 43 student-athletes with perfect 4.0 GPAs. That group included redshirt freshman outfielder Pat Hirschberg and junior catcher Sam Stucky.

In addition to Hirschberg and Stucky, senior pitcher Casey Hauptman and junior infielder Cody Asche, both Academic All-Big 12 selections in 2010, headline the long list of Husker baseball honorees. Hauptman earned the honor for the seventh time in his career, while Asche's award is his fourth in a row. Hauptman is a two-time selection to the Academic All-Big 12 team and holds a 3.715 GPA as a business administration major.

Nearly three-fourths of the Nebraska baseball team was represented on the honor roll. A complete list of the selections is below.
