    |

Clemson, SC-Two-hundred and twenty-six Clemson student-athletes,
including 39 with perfect 4.0 grade point averages, were named to the
school's academic honor roll for the first semester of the 2005-06
academic year. The data was released by Clemson University's Office of
Institutional Research and Planning on Friday.

Eight of the 15 Clemson athletic programs showed a team GPA
increase over the fall of 2004, including the men's basketball program,
which posted its highest fall semester team GPA on record (since
1986). Five of Clemson's seven women's sports programs posted a team
GPA of 3.0 or better, including the women's soccer team, which had a
department best 3.46 team GPA.


The 226 academic honor selections ranks as the second most ever
in a fall semester (229 in Fall of 1999) and the 39 President's List
scholars (4.0) ranked as the second best total on record for any
semester. There were 44 student-athletes with a perfect 4.0 in the
spring semester of 2004. Additionally, there were 109 student-athletes
who made the Dean's List (3.5 or better), the third highest figure on
record and best ever for a fall semester.

The programs that had a team GPA of 3.0 or better were women's
soccer (3.46), women's tennis (3.32), women's swimming (3.21), rowing
(3.20) and women's track (3.03). The team GPA for the women's soccer
team was its second best on record, while the figure for the women's
track program was also second best on record.

The women's tennis program continues to have a strong athletic
and academic combination. Each of the last two years the Lady Tigers
have advanced to the NCAA Final Four, a first ever for a women's sports
program at Clemson, and it had at least a 3.00 team GPA in all four of
those semesters.

Clemson's rowing program, coached by Susie Lueck, has had at least a 3.0
team GPA every semester the program has been in existence (15). The
rowing team also had the most student-athletes named to the academic
honor roll with 38, including 22 who were named to the Dean's List.

Christopher Ip's women's swimming program was second in academic
honor roll category with 29, while Todd Bramble's women's soccer team
had 21 student-athletes with a 3.0 or better, second highest total in
that program's history.

The men's swimming team had the highest team GPA among the male
sports at Clemson with a 2.92, while the Tiger football team had the most
student-athletes named to the academic honor roll with 19. That list
included starting tight end Thomas Hunter, who was named to the Dean's
List, and starting wide receiver Aaron Kelly.

The Clemson men's basketball team had a team GPA of 2.45, and had
six of the 13 roster players named to the academic honor roll. That list
included starting players Akin Akingbala, Cliff Hammonds, Sam Perry and
Shawan Robinson. Robinson is attempting to become the first basketball
player in Clemson history to be named to the All-ACC Academic team four
times.

Jack Leggett's baseball team had 16 student-athletes named to the
academic honor roll, including five of the eight starting position
players and two starting pitchers. Preseason All-American second
baseman Taylor Harbin was among the student-athletes on the academic
honor roll.

Other prominent student-athletes named to the ACC Academic Honor
roll were Amanda Frist (women's basketball), who had a perfect 4.0 GPA
and was earlier named to the CoSIDA All-District team, All-ACC rower Liz
Averyt, second-team All-ACC volleyball athlete Brittany Ross, ACC
Champion Swimmer Kim Routh, All-American tennis player Jarmaine
Jenkins, All-American soccer player Nathan Sturgis, and two-time All-ACC
women's tennis players Daniela Alvarez and Maria Brito.
