 Santa Clara's WCC Commissioner's Honor Roll List

SAN BRUNO, CA - With the conclusion of the 2009-10 academic year, the West Coast Conference is proud to announce the ninth annual WCC Commissioner's Honor Roll, which recognizes those student-athletes that possess at least a 3.0 GPA on a 4.0 scale.  A record number 117 Bronco student-athletes made the list.  Santa Clara had 22 on the Gold list, 25 on the Silver list and 70 on the Bronze list.  Santa Clara's student-athletes recorded a school-best 3.14 GPA during the Spring 2010 quarter as well.

All told, 892 WCC student-athletes, who participated in one of the WCC's 13 sponsored sports, were honored from the league's eight member institutions. This marks a new record for the conference, as the previous best total occurred over last year's academic term with 854 student-athletes making the list.  

"I would like to congratulate each and every one of our 892 student-athletes who made this year's WCC Commissioner's Honor Roll," said West Coast Conference Commissioner Jamie Zaninovich. "Breaking the all-time record for the second year in a row is a testament to our member institutions' commitment to helping their student-athletes reach their potential."  

Only grades earned at WCC institutions may be used in calculating the grade point average for this award. To be considered for this honor, student-athletes must meet the following requirements:  

1) Individuals must have earned a varsity letter in a sport which the conference determined a champion in the recently completed academic year.  

2) The cumulative grade point average of at least 3.0 must be based on a 4.0 scale.  

3) The individuals must have successfully completed an average of at least 12 graded credit hours (non pass-fail hours) per term.  

The conference recognizes those on the WCC Commissioner's Honor Roll in three separate categories:  

4.00-3.75 - Gold Honors 

3.74-3.50 - Silver Honors 

3.49-3.00 - Bronze Honors
