41 Arizona Wildcats student-athletes on Pac-12's Fall Academic Honor Roll

Samantha Falasco, left, clears the ball away from Iliana Hocking as the UA’s soccer team practices Thursday afternoon. The Wildcats will host TCU at 6 p.m. Saturday in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. It’s a rematch of their Sept. 21 game, which Arizona won 4-3 in Tucson.

The Pac-12 named 527 student-athletes across the conference to the Fall Academic Honor Roll, and the Arizona Wildcats are well represented: 41 student-athletes were recognized, figures that rank eight in the league. Stanford led the Pac-12 with 88 student-athletes and USC ranked last with 19. ASU was 10th on the list with 32. 

Here are the Arizona student-athletes that finished from the fall sports cycle (cross country, women's volleyball, football and women's soccer) and obtained a GPA of at least 3.3 with at least one year of eligibility completed.
