Volleyball Team Excels In Classroom|
June 20, 2000
Paced by the men's golf team, Texas Tech athletic teams continue to perform well in the classroom, according to statistics released today by the department of student services in the TTU athletic department.
After noting earlier this month that five teams had cumulative grade point averages of 3.00 or higher following the spring semester, associate athletic director for student services John Anderson said that six teams posted a 3.00 team GPA or higher for the actual 2000 Spring Semester.
Men's golf set the pace for spring quarter grade point averages with a 3.34, followed by volleyball at 3.24. Women's golf and men's tennis both posted a 3.16 team GPA for spring semester followed by soccer at 3.11 and women's tennis at 3.01.
Anderson also said that just over 50-percent of Texas Tech's 365 student-athletes are expected to be named to the spring Big 12 Commissioner's Honor Roll which will be released later this week. To be eligible for the Commissioner's Honor Roll a student-athlete must earn at least a 3.00 gpa.
