HUNTINGTON, Ind. - Each year an Academic Excellence Award is given to the Huntington University athletic team with the highest team grade point average for the year. The women’s cross country team repeated as the top team in 2014-15 with their 3.694 GPA. 

“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. It was a great year to be a Forester!”
