HOUSTON The University of Houston Athletics Department continually works to inspire excellence today while preparing leaders for life by fostering a culture which challenges student-athletes to achieve their highest academic, athletic and personal aspirations.

With 11 of 16 teams in season during the spring semester, Houston student-athletes combined to record a cumulative grade point average of 2.85, the highest cumulative GPA in Houston history following the spring term.

In addition to the record GPA, UH student-athletes passed an average 13.61 credit hours in the spring semester, the second-highest spring total in program history, while earning a semester GPA of 2.77, the third-highest spring GPA in program history.

Sixty-four Houston student-athletes were named to the University’s Dean’s List this spring with a 3.50 GPA or better including track & field’s Megan Frausto and swimming’s Reka Kovacs who were named American Kinesiology Association’s 2013 National Undergraduate Scholars.

Houston Athletics Academics

Three teams – baseball, men’s golf and men’s track and field – recorded their highest ever spring semester GPAs while men’s golf and men’s track and field reached program bests with their respective cumulative GPAs. Seven sports – baseball, men’s basketball, men’s golf, women’s basketball, softball, swimming & diving, tennis and men’s track and field – posted their highest cumulative GPA following a spring term.

The Houston softball program led all sports programs with a spring semester GPA of 3.47 and a cumulative GPA of 3.45, narrowly edging tennis’ semester GPA of 3.44 and cumulative GPA of 3.41.

Forty-four Houston student-athletes recently received their degrees from the University including eight who have athletic eligibility entering the 2013-14 academic year.
