Northwestern State lands 88 on SLC Commissioner’s Fall Honor Roll

Led by two dozen perfect grade point averages, 88 Northwestern State student-athletes were named to the 2021 Southland Conference Commissioner’s Fall Honor Roll.

All student-athletes who were eligible to compete in the fall semester and produced at least a 3.0 grade point average earned the distinction. Five NSU teams competed in the fall: football, volleyball, soccer and men’s and women’s cross country. Northwestern State’s 88 awardees were third most among the five Louisiana Southland institutions.

NSU’s regular-season and Southland Conference Tournament champion soccer team had 24 players named to the honor roll, including nine with perfect 4.0 grade point averages.

Football produced 38 honor roll members. Nine Demon football players posted perfect 4.0 grade point averages.

Eleven of NSU’s 14 volleyball players were included on the team while nine of 14 Demon and Lady Demon cross-country competitors earned the honor from the Southland.

This marks the first time since the fall 2019 semester the Southland will break its honor roll into fall and spring semesters. A year ago, because of shifted schedules, the conference released a comprehensive honor roll in June.
