Georgia Gwinnett College’s 129 student-athletes wrapped up another strong showing in the classroom during the spring 2014 semester.
The Grizzlies’ efforts produced 57 Director of Athletics’ Honor Roll recipients with a 3.0 or higher semester GPA, including 14 Dean’s List honorees and 10 President’s List standouts with a 4.0.
President’s List scholars were Justin Bryan, Chiara di Salvo, Matias Hatem, Nikki LeFevre, Sara Lindell, Juan Matute, Zach Mruk, Lewis Sharpe, Brady Shoppe and Victoria Svensson- the largest group to date for Grizzly Athletics.
“Our efforts in the classroom highlight a terrific year for Grizzly Athletics,” said Dr. Darin S. Wilson, GGC’s Director of Athletics. “We will continue to stress how crucial academic performance is to the overall experience at GGC and just like on the playing field, we look to improve every single semester.”
The Grizzly student-athlete population finished with a 2.87 mark for the 2013-14 academic year.
The men’s tennis team once again led the way this spring with a 3.23 team GPA, while women’s tennis (3.05), women’s soccer (2.98) and softball (2.89) were not far behind.
The fall 2014 semester and the third year for Grizzly Athletics will begin in mid August.
