EDINBURG – The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley (UTRGV) Department of Intercollegiate Athletics announced Wednesday that a record 159 student-athletes made the Fall Athletic Director’s Honor Roll by achieving a grade point average (GPA) of at least 3.0 while serving as full-time students as part of a team during the fall semester.

UTRGV Athletics will recognize these student-athletes at halftime of the men’s basketball game against Chicago State on Thursday at 7 p.m. at the UTRGV Fieldhouse. The men’s basketball student-athletes will be recognized prior to the game.
