The UT women’s golf program was honored for its outstanding classroom performance this year by earning its greatest recognition to date from the Women’s Golf Coaches Association. The Rockets’ 3.723 team grade-point average during the 2016-17 academic year ranked No. 22 nationally (17th among NCAA Division I programs), with Jacksonville University leading the way with a remarkable 3.924 GPA.“What a great honor for our student-athletes,” Head Women’s Golf Coach Nicole Hollingsworth said. “We have only been on this list once before in the history of this award, and this year’s grade point average is our best yet. I am so proud of their hard work in the classroom, golf course and community. What an awesome award to end the year!”
Toledo registered a school record 3.780 cumulative GPA in the 2017 spring semester and has posted team grade-point averages above 3.00 in 27 of the 28 semesters under Hollingsworth.
