Liberty's student-athletes excelled in the classroom this year, placing 157 members on the Big South Presidential Honor Roll.

Liberty University had 157 student-athletes named to the Big South Presidential Honor Roll, as announced by the league on Thursday.

To be named to the Presidential Honor Roll, student-athletes must have maintained a grade point average (GPA) of 3.0 (on a 4.0 scale) or better for the recently completed academic year.

The list caps off a banner academic year for the department. Liberty had 12 out of 18 programs post a cumulative 3.0 or higher team GPA.

Individually, Liberty had 17 student-athletes named to various Big South All-Academic teams and six student-athletes garner VaSID Academic All-State and ESPN The Magazine/CoSIDA Academic All-District distinctions.

Finally, senior women's track and field athlete Arlene Zelinskas was named an ESPN The Magazine/CoSIDA Academic All-America second-team honoree. She becomes the 11th student-athlete in the athletics department's history to earn CoSIDA Academic All-America honors.
