Many times in collegiate sports the student part of the student-athlete is forgotten. Xavier of Louisiana seeks to buck that trend. Almost 100 student athletes were able to make the Athletic Director’s honors roll with a minimum 3.0 GPA during the 2014 calender year.

These athletes were able to be recognized during the Gold Nuggets game against rival Dillard. Of the recognized athletes a whopping five teams had a double digit number of athletes, including the Pom Squad, Women’s cross country/track and field, women’s volleyball, the Gold Star Dancers, and the cheerleading squad.
