Houston Athletics Set Multiple Academic Records

May 19, 2017

HOUSTON – Houston Athletics continually focuses on building Champions for Life by preparing over 400 student-athletes to become champions in academics, athletics and in the community. That mission continued in the spring as the student-athletes recorded the highest spring GPA (2.95), highest cumulative GPA following a spring semester (2.93) and the highest average hours passed in a spring semester (14.1) in program history.

Those three records were in addition to a record 108 student-athletes, or 27 percent of the student-athlete body, being named to the University of Houston’s Dean’s List by recording a 3.50 GPA or better while passing 12 or more hours.

The numbers were bolstered by 12 of Houston’s 17 teams eclipsing the 3.0 mark in spring GPA, led by Softball with a 3.48 GPA for the semester. Swimming & Diving was second with a 3.45 GPA followed by Women’s Cross Country at 3.43. Golf led all men’s programs with a 3.16 semester GPA.

Softball also led the way in terms of cumulative GPA, recording a 3.42 while Women’s Cross Country was next at 3.36. Swimming & Diving ranked third among Houston’s 17 sport programs at 3.33 in the spring while Cross Country led the way on the men’s side with a 3.16 cumulative GPA.

Swimming & Diving, Women’s Golf and Baseball each recorded their best spring semester GPAs in their respective program histories, while Softball and Football each recorded their second-best marks in program history.

Swimming & Diving, Women’s Golf, Baseball and Women’s Track & Field all stand with their highest cumulative GPAs following a spring semester, while Softball and Football have their second best.

Eleven student-athletes recorded perfect 4.0 GPAs in the fall: Katelyn Abernathy (Swimming & Diving), Landon Etzel (Baseball), Megan Goh (Soccer), Shelby Harper (Volleyball), Cait Horner (Swimming & Diving), Peyton Kondis (Swimming & Diving), Claire Liptak (Swimming & Diving), Margo McEntire (Soccer), Megan Thothong (Women’s Golf), Mason Tobola (Football) and Hannah Wolfe (Softball).

For McEntire and Thothong, it marked a fourth consecutive semester with a perfect 4.0 GPA, while Etzel, Tobola, Goh, Wolfe and Horner recorded 4.0 GPAs for the second straight semester.
