Seventy-eight Sam Houston State student-athletes from Bearkat sports teams that completed their playing seasons during the fall semester earned spots of the Southland Conference Commissioner’s Academic honor roll.

The Bearkats’ Academic All-Southland selections from volleyball were Tayler Gray and Deveney Wells-Gibson (volleyball); Ashley Fluty, Kyle Hambleton and Mariah Titus (soccer) and Brian Bell, Eric Fieilo, Timothy Flanders, Keshawn Hill and Torrance Williams (football).
