The 2011-12 SEC Winter Academic Honor Roll is based on grades from the 2011 Spring, Summer and Fall terms.
Alabama tide with Georgia and South Caroline for the most student-athletes on the list.
Men's swimming and diving had the most athletes earn SEC Academic Honor Roll distinctions with 11. They include James Disney-May (Economics, Liberal Arts), Stuart Ferguson (Philosophy), Adam Godzinski (Supply Chain Management), Zane Grothe (Aerospace Engineering), Peter Haas (Political Science), Spencer Kerns (Biomedical Sciences Pre-Dentistry), Tofey Leon (Biomedical Sciences Pre-Med), Christopher Manning (History), Max Murphy (Political Science), Kyle Owens (Biomedical Sciences Pre-Med) and John Santeiu (Chemistry).

To earn a place on the honor roll, a student-athlete must earn a 3.0 or better grade point average for either the preceding academic year or their career and be a sophomore or better in academic standing. The winter list honors those student-athletes that participate in men's and women's basketball, gymnastics and men's and women's swimming and diving.
The Tide's football, soccer and volleyball teams, which were honored earlier this year, put 56 student-athletes on the fall honor roll. The conference will recognize the sports whose championships are in the spring, as well as this year's freshmen, at a later date.
