BIRMINGHAM, Ala. -- A total of 29 LSU student-athletes were named to the 2006 Southeastern Conference Fall Academic Honor Roll, SEC Commissioner Mike Slive announced Tuesday.
The Tiger football team topped the list of teams with members on the Honor Roll, placing 17 members on the list, including senior offensive lineman Peter Dyakowski, who was a member of ESPN.com's All-Bowl Team for his performance against Notre Dame in the Sugar Bowl. The Canadian played out his final year of eligibility after earning his bachelor's degree in history in the spring of 2006.
In addition, eight members of the women's soccer team made the list, including second-team All-SEC selection Rosalyn Jones, who finished the year ranked seventh in the SEC in goals and points. Four members of the Tiger volleyball team, which advanced to the NCAA Tournament in 2006 for the second-straight year, also made the Honor Roll, led by first-team All-SEC selection Marina Skender and SEC All-Freshman team selection Lauren DeGirolamo.
A total of 454 student-athletes were named to the 2006 SEC Fall Academic Honor Roll. Kentucky and South Carolina, which also field men’s soccer teams in the fall, topped the list with 51 student-athletes each on the fall academic roster.
The 2006 SEC Fall Academic Honor Roll is based on grades from the 2006 Spring, Summer and Fall terms.
