The women's golf program once again topped all teams in grades, garnering five 4.0s along with a team GPA of 3.72. Beach Volleyball (3.61), Volleyball (3.60) and women's cross country/track and field (3.50) followed closely in line.

With a plethora of awards already bestowed, student-athletes will still have the opportunity to earn a number of academic honors with the Pioneer Football League and Ohio Valley Conference Honor Rolls later this summer.
