It is also the 13th consecutive semester in which UT student-athletes earned a combined GPA of 3.1 or higher.

“We could not be more proud of what our student-athletes accomplished in the classroom this past semester,” O’Brien said. “For every team to earn at least a 3.0 grade point average says so much about the commitment to academics of our student-athletes. It also speaks of the great support provided by our coaches, athletic department academic staff and University faculty members who help them reach their goals.

“This is truly a great achievement for our student-athletes, one in which all of Rocket Nation can take great pride.”

Individually, 23 student-athletes earned President’s List honors with a perfect 4.0 GPA, while 35 percent (119 of 340) earned a spot on the Dean’s List by garnering at least a 3.50 GPA, and 70 percent (238 of 340) achieved a 3.0 grade point average or better for spring semester.

Women’s soccer had the highest team GPA at 3.640. Baseball had the highest GPA for a men’s team with 3.307.
