Bobcats Place 128 Student-Athletes on Conference Carolinas' Presidental Honor Roll

HIGHPOINT, N.C. -- The Conference Carolinas office has announced the Conference Carolinas is proud to announce the 2007-2008 Presidential Honor Roll. This past year marks the first Presidential Honor Roll class of Conference Carolinas since the conference officially changed its name.


Each institution within the conference has emphasized their commitment to academic importance as they have continued to have student-athletes achieve a grade point average of 3.0 or higher (on a 4.0 scale) at their institutions. As our conference continues to emphasize "Academics and Athletics Working Together" we strive to increase our Presidential Honor Roll each year in order to become a frontrunner within NCAA Division II.

"The number of student-athletes receiving this honor shows their priorities," said Bobcat Athletic Director Ried Estus. "They understand the value of their education and balance their athletic aspirations with their career aspirations."

The Bobcats placed 128 out of 302 student-athletes, 42.38%, on this year's list. The Bobcats are third on the list with Pfeiffer at 45.10% in first and Mt. Olive at 43.47% in second. Rounding out the top five are Barton at 41.87% in fourth and Converse at 40.67% in fifth.
