Baseball Drops Saturday Game at Tulane


May 16, 2012

HOUSTON—When measuring a student-athlete’s success, we take into account the production on the field and more importantly what takes place in the classroom. The University of Houston baseball team once again showed the ability to produce exceptional numbers as a team in the classroom, posting a team cumulative GPA of 3.15 for the Spring 2012 semester.

27 baseball student-athletes posted a GPA of 3.00 or better during their busy travel semester. The 3.15 cumulative GPA was the highest Spring GPA accumulated by Houston baseball in the history of the program. The 2012 squad also posted a 3.07 team overall GPA for the academic year, another record high for the program.

The Cougars have now posted a 3.00 GPA or better in all four semesters under second year head coach Todd Whitting, with the 2012 Spring semester surpassing all previous highs. 

Six players notched a 3.50 GPA or better during this semester as seniors Jared Ray and John Cannon led the way with a 4.00, while seniors Mo Wiley and Jake Runte as well as sophomore Dustin Fuerst and freshman Harrison Ayala were also named to the Dean’s List.

“I am extremely proud of the effort put forth by our student-athletes in the classroom,” said Whitting. “It is a tremendous accomplishment by them to once again raise the bar and expectation level for our program.”

NOTABLE AWARDS

  • Freshman right-handed pitcher Ryan Vruggink was one of 15 Houston student-athletes to receive a Conference USA Academic Medal for posting a 3.75 GPA or higher announced back in March.
  • Sophomore DH Jonathan Davis was tabbed as a Capital One Academic All-District First Team selection by CoSIDA.
  • 25 baseball players were named to the Commissioner’s Honor Roll this year—the most by any team at Houston.
