NEW ORLEANS – Nearly 1,500 student-athletes were honored by the Sun Belt Conference for achieving a grade point average of 3.0 or better, the league announced Friday. Among those honored were 146 student-athletes from Louisiana-Lafayette.

Sun Belt schools combined to have more than 650 student-athletes land on the Commissioner’s List, which honors all student-athletes recording a 3.5 GPA or better during the 2006-07 academic year. The league also had numerous standouts named to the Academic Honor Roll, which is awarded to those maintaining a GPA between 3.0 and 3.49.

The Sun Belt Conference is committed to academic excellence and proof comes in the fact that 12 members schools are currently graduating their student-athletes at a rate higher than their school’s student body.

The Ragin’ Cajuns football team produced 35 academic honorees, including a 12 Commissioner’s List members. The women’s soccer team had a program-best 15 Commissioner’s List members. The women’s soccer and track and field teams each had 21 student-athletes on the academic lists, followed by baseball (18), men’s track and field (16), softball (10), volleyball (9), golf (6), women’s tennis (4) and men’s (3) and women’s (3) basketball.
