“I want to congratulate all of our student-athletes for their outstanding academic performance on the year,” said athletic director Lori Culler. “We duplicated last year’s record number of 14 teams posting a 3.0 or higher GPA for the year and all 17 teams compiled a 2.8 GPA or above, a feat I’m sure not many athletic programs accomplish.
