UT frosh set academic record

Tennessee's 2008-09 freshman class contributed what is believed to be a school-record 54 members to the 2009 SEC Freshman Academic Honor Roll, as announced Thursday by Commissioner Mike Slive.

One year ago, Tennessee's total was 44. UT's best previous season on record was 50 for the 2005-06 academic year. Other recent totals of note were 47 in 2006-07, 27 in 2004-05, 42 in 2003-04 and 35 in 2002-03.

Each student-athlete must have: 1) a cumulative GPA of 3.00 or above at the nominating institution; 2) be on scholarship or a letter winner; 3) have completed 24 semester hours of non-remedial credit at the nominating institution; and 4) have been a member of the varsity team for the sport's entire NCAA Championship segment.

The 2009 SEC Freshmen Academic Honor Roll is based on grades from the 2008-09 academic calendar.
