CHARLESTON, S.C. - Rising junior Alyssa Frye was recently honored by the Southern Conference by being placed on the 2011-12 Academic Honor Roll.
"I'm very proud of Alyssa," CofC women's basketball head coach Natasha Adair said. "Academics are taken very seriously here at the College of Charleston. Alyssa continuously shows determination, focus and balance when it comes to academics and athletics. This is a great achievement for her and all of her hard work."
On the court Frye was the third-leading scorer on the team for the Cougars and made the most three-point baskets with 35.
Frye, who is undecided on her major finished the year with a 3.46 GPA.
College of Charleston increased the number of student-athletes on the Honor Roll yet again this year, joining five other member institutions that also raised the number of honorees for this academic year. Overall, College of Charleston ranked fourth in the Southern Conference for the most honorees, trailing only Davidson (270), Wofford (204) and Appalachian State (193).
Southern Conference athletic directors established the honor roll prior to the 1988-89 athletic season as a way to recognize the league's outstanding student-athletes. The academic honor roll consists of student-athletes who participated in varsity sports at member institutions and posted a 3.0 grade point average or higher while passing at least 24 hours in two semesters of classes or its equivalent for other academic calendars.
