Three of Florida’s spring honorees were named to ESPN The Magazine Academic All-America teams earlier this spring –Stephanie Brombacher (softball), Kelsey Bruder (softball) and Evelien Dekkers (track & field).

To be recognized to the SEC Academic Honor Roll, each student-athlete must have a GPA of 3.00 for either the preceding academic year or have a cumulative GPA of 3.00 or above at the nominating institution; be on scholarship, a letterwinner or have participated on a varsity team for two years if non-scholarship; have completed 24 semester hours of non-remedial credit at the nominating institution; and have been a member of the varsity team for the sport’s entire NCAA Championship segment.

For the 2009-10 academic year, a total of 177 UF student-athletes earned a spot on the league's academic honor roll. UF is the only SEC school to place 100 or more student-athletes on the Academic Honor Roll each of the last 13 years. UF set its school record with 193 honorees in 2002-03. In the last 10 years, Florida leads the league with a total of 1,715 recipients.
