University of Toledo Vice President and Athletic Director Mike O’Brien announced today that UT student-athletes earned a grade point average of 3.181 in spring semester.
Individually, 22 student-athletes earned president’s list honors with a perfect 4.0 GPA, while nearly 35 percent (117 of 337) earned a spot on the dean’s list by garnering at least a 3.50 GPA, and 64 percent (218 of 337) achieved a 3.0 grade point average or better for the 2014 spring semester.
Women’s tennis had the highest team GPA at 3.539. Baseball had the highest GPA for a men’s team with 3.389.
“We are rightfully proud of the consistently outstanding effort of our student-athletes in the classroom,” O’Brien said. “For each of the past 11 semesters, they have earned a combined grade point average of at least 3.1, which says a lot about their dedication and commitment to academics. It is also a positive reflection upon the coaches, athletic department academic staff and University faculty members who play such a critical role in supporting and nurturing their pursuit of excellence.”
UT student-athletes’ grades are consistently among the best in the Mid-American Conference. UT won the MAC Institutional Academic Achievement Award in 2011-12 and 2012-13. The award is given to the MAC school with the highest overall institutional GPA in sports sponsored by the conference.
