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.
