Indianapolis, Ind. - Seventy-Nine Butler Athletes Named To Horizon League's Spring Academic Honor Roll

Bulldogs place third-most athletes among 10 league schools.

Butler continued its tradition of producing student-athletes who achieve success both on the playing field and in the classroom, as 79 Bulldogs were mentioned on the Horizon League's 2008 Spring Academic Honor Roll.

Butler's total was the third-most among the 10 league schools and just five shy of leader Youngstown State (84).

Women's cross country/track & field tabbed 17 athletes to the list, the most of any program at Butler. Men's cross country/track & field finished with 12, while baseball, men's basketball, women's soccer and women's swimming each featured six athletes.

In all, 632 student-athletes from the 10 league schools were mentioned on the honor roll.

Candidates for the Horizon League Academic Honor Roll must meet three criteria in order to qualify: 1) participation in at least one of the League's 19 sports during the most recent (or current) season; 2) completion of three semesters (or four quarters, where applicable) as a full-time student at the same member institution; and 3) a cumulative grade-point average of at least 3.20 (on a 4.00 scale) as of June 20, 2008.
