OXFORD, Miss.  While setting records on the fields and courts, 72 student-athletes from the University of Mississippi were named to the 2016 Fall SEC Academic Honor Roll announced Wednesday by SEC Commissioner Greg Sankey.

Overall, 1,029 student-athletes from the conference’s 14 teams made the honor roll, which is based on grades from the 2016 spring, summer and fall terms.

Football led the way with 21 on the honor roll, including record-setting quarterback Chad Kelly for the second time. Kickoff specialist Nathan Noble made the honor roll for the fifth time, and punter Will Gleeson earned the honor for the fourth time. Wide receiver Quincy Adeboyejo, offensive lineman Sean Rawlings and kicker Gary Wunderlich were among the three-time honorees on the list.

Soccer placed 19 on the honor roll, including four-time honorees Melissa Capocaccia, Addie Forbus, Gretchen Harknett, Madi Killeen, Caitlin Lewis and Georgia Russell.

Women’s cross country made history this year qualifying for the NCAA Championships for the first time in program history and posting the team’s best-ever finish in the SEC, taking runner-up honors. Fifteen runners earned honor roll status, including All-SEC first team honoree Mary Alex England and All-SEC second team member Bo Ummels.

Men’s cross country followed up a banner season with nine on the SEC Academic Honor Roll, including All-American Wesley Gallagher, who helped lead the men to a fourth-place finish at the NCAA Championships.

Volleyball posted its highest semester GPA in seven years last fall, paced by eight players on the honor roll, including CoSIDA First Team Academic All-American Aubrey Edie, Lexi Thompson, who led the SEC in double-doubles, and Caroline Adams.
