208 WKU student-athletes, a program best since joining Conference USA, were named to the Conference USA Commissioner’s Honor Roll on Wednesday. The honor recognizes student-athletes who completed the 2020-21 academic year with a 3.0 GPA or higher.

63% of all WKU student-athletes made the list, the highest percentage in any year since the university joined C-USA. Every sport produced at least six honorees. 3,501 student-athletes completed the feat across all of C-USA, an 11.5% increase over the previous academic year.

90 student-athletes completed their degrees during the 2020-21 academic year and WKU’s spring and summer 2021 graduating classes put together a cumulative 3.35 GPA, the highest mark since 2010.
