Alabama rowing placed 33 student-athletes on the academic All-Big 12 honor roll, per release on Wednesday.

The Crimson Tide's mark of 33 was the most in the conference, with 28 first teamers followed by five second teamers on the list. Alabama has eight first team honorees post a 4.0 GPA, the most of any school.

Though Alabama is traditionally an SEC team, it competes in the Big 12 for rowing because of the lack of other rowing programs in the SEC.
