The Lees-McRae College athletic department placed 143 student-athletes on the 2011 Conference Carolinas Fall Presidential Honor Roll, announced league officials Tuesday. Lees-McRae and Conference Carolinas continue to
emphasize "Academics and Athletics Working Together." The Presidential Honor Roll recognizes student-athletes who have earned a 3.20 grade-point average on a 4.00 scale for the semester and includes freshman and transfer student athletes (that have participated in either a conference or non-conference sponsored sport).
The Conference Carolinas Presidential Honor Roll is awarded twice a year covering each of the fall and spring academic semesters and is based on meeting the criteria at the end of the previous semester. King College led all league members with 204 student-athletes represented during the 2011 fall season; King was followed closely by North Greenville University with 171 and Limestone College with 163 honorees. Queens University of Charlotte was fourth with 146 honorees, edging Lees-McRae's total of 143.
Lees-McRae's cycling team led the way for the Bobcats with 32 honorees, while the women's soccer team placed 14 student-athletes on the honor roll. The men's soccer and women's track and field teams each had 13 student-athletes recognized as well.
