A total of 49 Mississippi State student-athletes were named to the 2015-16 First-Year Southeastern Conference Academic Honor Roll, the league office announced Thursday.

Baseball and football placed an MSU-best eight on the list, with men’s track and field not far behind with seven. Softball had the most among women’s programs with five, as women’s soccer and women’s track and field each had four named.

Along with having posted an MSU-best 3.32 grade point average, men’s tennis posted three of its own to the honor roll, while men’s golf, women’s golf and women’s tennis each tallied two. Men’s and women’s basketball rounded out the group with one apiece.

I have covered Mississippi State in some capacity since 2004 and joined the Daily Journal staff in 2013. I enjoy short walks on the beach, performing concerts in my car and watching professional wrestling.
