Southeastern Places 117 on Southland Commissioner’s Spring 2019 Honor Roll

HAMMOND, La.  – Southeastern Louisiana placed 117 student-athletes on the Spring 2019 Southland Conference Commissioner’s Honor Roll, which was released by the league office on Thursday. The 117 honor roll selections represented the highest single-semester total in school history. Southeastern has placed 100 or more student-athletes on the spring honor roll for each of the last four years.

The conference’s 13 institutions totaled 1,414 honor roll members. To be eligible for the Southland Conference Commissioner’s Spring Honor Roll, student-athletes from the sports of baseball, basketball, golf, softball, tennis and track and field have to carry a 3.0 grade point average or higher in the spring 2019 semester. UIW led the way with 147 selections. Abilene Christian (134), McNeese (133), Central Arkansas (126) and SLU round out the league’s top five.

Every Southeastern spring sports’ honor roll total was in the top half for their respective sport when compared to the other institutions’ programs. Leading the way was the Southeastern baseball team, which had 25 representatives on the honor roll – the most among the 13 Southland baseball programs.

Coach Matt Riser’s squad’s contingent was highlighted by Academic All-American and Southland Student-Athlete of the Year Corey Gaconi. The league’s Pitcher of the Year was joined by fellow Southland All-Academic selections Jared Biddy, Mason Knopp, Kyle Schimpf and Bryce Tassin. Gaconi and Schimpf were among five Lions who posted a 4.0 GPA this spring.

The women’s track and field program tied for department-high honors with 25 selections. Sixth among Southland women’s track programs, SLU was led by Southland All-Academic performers Ashley Davis and Grace Walford. Walford was one of four Lady Lions with a 4.0 spring semester GPA. Walford and company’s male counterparts added 20 representatives to the honor roll, good for fifth among Southland men’s track and field programs. Southland All-Academic selection Gerald Coleman is among the Lions’ contingent, which also includes six 4.0 students this spring.

Southland All-Academic members Rebecca Skains and Madisen Blackford highlighted a 15-member contingent from the SLU softball program. Tanner Wright carried a 4.0 semester GPA for the Lady Lions, who had the fifth-highest honor roll tally among league softball programs.

The women’s basketball team was also fifth among league women’s basketball programs with nine honorees. Ashailee Brailey had the team’s lone 4.0 GPA, while All-Southland and All-Louisiana performer Celica Sterling was also among the Lady Lion representatives.

The men’s golf and women’s tennis programs each had eight honorees, ranking second and third, respectively, in the Southland among their respective sports. Head coach Jake Narro’s golf team had 100 percent representation on the honor roll, as all eight Lion golfers posted a 3.0 GPA or higher this semester, led by Southland All-Academic performer Joris Etlin.

The SLU tennis team maintained its top team GPA in Southeastern Athletics. Of its honor roll contingent, five had a 4.0 GPA this spring, including Southland All-Academic honoree Katya Cornejo.

Among Southland men’s basketball programs, SLU was fifth with seven honorees. Key contributors Kajon Brown and Pape Diop were among the Lion contingent.
