BIRMINGHAM, Ala. - Eleven Ole Miss student-athletes were among a total of 466 student-athletes named to the 2012-13 Winter SEC Academic Honor Roll, Tuesday by SEC Commissioner Mike Slive.

The 2012-13 Winter SEC Academic Honor Roll is based on grades from the 2012 Spring, Summer and Fall terms.

Rifle led the way with six of seven team members making the honor roll, including senior Kim Coffey, who earned the honor for the third consecutive year.  Women's basketball seniors Maggie McFerrin and Courtney Marbra made it for the second time as did men's basketball sophomore Will Norman.

Any student-athlete who participates in a Southeastern Conference championship sport or a student-athlete who participates in a sport listed on his/her institution's NCAA Sports Sponsorship Form is eligible for nomination to the Academic Honor Roll. The following criteria should be followed: (1) A student-athlete must have a grade point average of 3.00 or above for either the preceding academic year (two semesters or three quarters) or have a cumulative grade point average of 3.00 or above at the nominating institution. (2) If a student-athlete attends summer school, his/her grade point average during the summer academic term must be included in the calculation used to determine eligibility for the Academic Honor Roll. (3) Student-athletes eligible for the Honor Roll include those receiving an athletics scholarship, recipients of an athletics award (i.e., letter winner), and non-scholarship student-athletes who have been on a varsity team for two seasons. (4) Prior to being nominated, a student-athlete must have successfully completed 24 semester or 36 quarter hours of non-remedial academic credit toward a baccalaureate degree at the nominating institution. (5) The student-athlete must have been a member of a varsity team for the sport's entire NCAA Championship segment.
