The University of Toledo student-athletes earned a combined grade point average of 3.401 in the 2022 fall semester, Vice President and Director of Athletics Bryan B. Blair announced. It is the highest semester GPA ever recorded by the Rockets using a normal grading scale.

It is the fifth consecutive semester in which Toledo student-athletes have set a new GPA record and the eighth consecutive semester in which they have earned a semester GPA of 3.3 or higher.

Quinesha Lockett led the Toledo women’s basketball team to an 83-76 win Wednesday night against Ball State. Women’s basketball is among five Toledo teams last fall to achieve their highest GPA. Overall, UToledo student-athletes earned a combined grade point average of 3.401 in fall semester, marking the fifth consecutive semester in which they have set a new GPA record.

Women’s Tennis recorded the highest semester team GPA with a mark of 3.822, which is the second-best mark ever for any Rocket team using a normal grading scale, trailing only the 3.825 mark earned by women’s swimming and diving in the spring of 2022.

Five teams achieved their highest GPAs ever in their respective sports: Women’s Tennis (3.822), Men’s Golf (3.819), Softball (3.754), Women’s Basketball (3.687) and Men’s Basketball (3.391).

Other highlights from this past semester include:

•  A record 74 student-athletes (19%) earned President’s List honors with a perfect 4.0 GPA.

•  201 student-athletes (51%) earned a spot on the Dean’s List by garnering at least a 3.50 GPA.

•  302 out of 393 (77%) total student-athletes made the Honor Roll by securing a 3.00 GPA or higher.

“I’m incredibly proud our student-athletes for their record-breaking semester in the classroom, including a new GPA record and nearly 20% of our student-athletes earning a 4.0,” Blair said. “Fall 2022 saw many great athletic achievements, including two MAC championships. Accomplishing high levels of athletic success while continually setting academic records is really special and speaks to the people and culture within Toledo Athletics.

“From our Student-Athlete Support Services (SAAS) staff to the dedicated University faculty, staff, coaches and parents, I commend all those who support our student-athletes.”

“Congratulations to our student-athletes, who have now broken the all-time student-athlete GPA record for the fifth-straight semester,” said Associate Athletic Director for Student-Athlete Support Services Tony Belt. “Their determination and dedication to academics is nothing short of amazing. A major thanks should be given to The University of Toledo community. These record marks are a testament to what our campus partners do for our student-athletes on a daily basis.”
