BU baseball achieves 3.0 grade-point average for 13th consecutive semester
Bearcats rank first in America East Conference in academic success

VESTAL, N.Y. - Coming off the program's most successful season at the Division I level, Binghamton University baseball continued its high standards in the classroom as well, maintaining a 3.17 grade-point average for the fall semester. It was the 13th consecutive semester that the team has achieved a 3.0 or higher.

Nearly two-thirds of the team recorded a fall GPA of 3.0 or higher, including seven student-athletes who were above the 3.5 mark.

"I'm amazed, simply amazed, each and every semester 'the streak' continues," head coach Tim Sinicki said. "To have 28 young men continually demonstrate the commitment it takes to achieve this type of academic success, while at the same time prepare for the rigors and challenges of Division I baseball just blows me away."

Binghamton has held the highest grade-point average of any baseball program in the America East all four years that the Bearcats have been in the conference.

The Bearcats open their 2006 slate at Delaware State on March 4.
