Mocs Tie a School-Record With 11 Teams Posting a 3.0 G.P.A.

For the second straight semester, the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga Athletics Department had a school-record 11 teams post a 3.0 grade-point-average.  The Mocs finished the 2013 spring term with a 2.92 overall g.p.a., their sixth consecutive semester with at least a 2.90.

This is the fourth time 11 teams have recorded a 3.0., including Fall 2012, Spring 2011 and Fall 2010.  UTC had 126 student-athletes make the Dean’s List with a 3.2, while 156 made the Athletics Director’s Honor Roll with a 3.0.  Both were the highest numbers on record for a spring semester, and over half of the Mocs scored a 3.0 or better for the eighth consecutive term.    

“It is always exciting to see our student-athlete perform well in the classroom,” stated UTC Vice Chancellor and Director of Athletics David Blackburn.  “We have a stated goal of reaching and maintaining a 3.0 g.p.a. across the board.  If we continue to guide, encourage and support our student-athletes to reach their full potential, academically, I am sure we can accomplish that task.”

The men’s cross country team was very impressive with a new UTC record 3.84 semester g.p.a.  It just topped the previous high of 3.82 set by the women’s cross country team in the spring of 2011.  All 12 members of the men’s cross country team made the Dean’s List while seven scored a perfect 4.0 g.p.a.

The wrestling team continues to climb closer to a 3.0, scoring a program record 2.98 g.p.a. in the spring.  It is the second straight term the Mocs set a new benchmark.  The wrestling team also had new highs with 16 on the Dean’s List and 19 on the Athletics Director’s Honor Roll. 

Volleyball tied a program high with 11 student-athletes on the Dean’s List and just missed its best g.p.a. with a 3.5.  Women’s tennis tied a team record with nine student-athletes on the A.D. Honor Roll. 

The Mocs began tracking the combined g.p.a. of student-athletes in 2007.  The charts below include the overall g.p.a. trends since that time, as well as the percentage of student-athletes on the A.D. Honor Roll.
