Among Vanderbilt's teams, the women's track & field team led the way with 15 student-athletes being named to the SEC Academic Honor Roll. Florida was tops in the league with 25 student-athletes on the honor roll.

The Commodore baseball squad followed with 10 of its student-athletes making the SEC Academic Honor Roll. Arkansas led the way in the SEC with 22 of its student-athletes being selected.

Women's golf had a team-record and a league-best nine student-athletes named to the SEC Academic Honor Roll. Following the Commodores in the league were Alabama (8) and South Carolina (6).

Also leading the conference was Vanderbilt's women's tennis team, which had eight student-athletes honored on the SEC Academic Honor Roll. Next up behind the Commodores with seven honorees were Kentucky and South Carolina.

Vanderbilt's men's golf team had five of its student-athletes selected to the SEC Academic Honor Roll. The five honorees were three behind the eight that South Carolina had and tied the Commodores with four other schools for second place.

Rounding out the Vanderbilt contingent was the men's tennis team, which had four student-athletes named to the SEC Academic Honor Roll. South Carolina led all men's tennis squads with seven honorees.
