VESTAL, N.Y.—A record number of Binghamton student-athletes earned a 3.3 or higher grade-point average for the spring semester.
Director of Athletics Patrick Elliott announced Monday that 195 student-athletes met the lofty 3.3 GPA threshold in the spring and have been recognized on the Athletic Director’s Honor Roll. The number of honorees represents 47 percent of BU’s total student-athlete body - also equaling the highest percentage in the four semesters since the Honor Roll was instituted.
“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 men’s track and cross country programs and 20 members of the women’s soccer program. Every sports program had at least five Honor Roll recipients.
The release comes on the heels of another stellar semester for the department, whose student-athletes produced an all-sports GPA of 3.10 - the 15th consecutive semester above a 3.0 and fifth time in the last seven semesters the student-athlete body has reached an even-higher 3.1 mark.
The women’s tennis team captured the department’s Team Academic Cup with a 3.48 GPA.
