VESTAL, N.Y.—A record number of Binghamton student-athletes earned a 3.3 or higher grade-point average for the fall semester.
Director of Athletics Patrick Elliott announced that 188 student-athletes met the lofty 3.3 GPA threshold in the fall and have been recognized on the Athletic Director’s Honor Roll. The number of honorees represents 45 percent of BU’s total student-athlete body. The department will honor the group at halftime of the men’s basketball game Wednesday night at the Events Center.
“This long list of worthy individuals further indicates the academic commitment of our student-athletes and shows that their dedication on the playing field is matched with equal achievement in the classroom.” Elliott said.
The list of recipients on the AD Honor Roll includes members of all 21 athletics teams at Binghamton, including 22 members of the women’s track and cross country programs and 20 members of the women’s soccer program. The release comes on the heels of another stellar semester for the department, whose student-athletes produced an all-sports GPA of 3.12 - the highest fall semester mark in 11 years. Additionally, the group eclipsed the 3.0 threshold for the 14th consecutive semester and met the 3.1 mark for the fourth time in the last six semesters.
The women’s tennis team captured the department’s Team Academic Cup with a 3.59 GPA.
