LTC Athletes Earn 3.29 GPA
Student athletes at Lincoln Trail College had a cumulative grade point average of 3.29 on a 4.0 scale during the Fall 2015 Semester.
“As an athletic director, I couldn’t be happier,” says Athletic Director Kevin Bowers. “This is the true definition of student athletes.”
The softball team finished with a 3.65 GPA. “I am so proud of this group. Their academic progress has just been outstanding,” says coach Gary Rodgers. “When you’re around this group, you can tell that they have personal goals. One of those goals is to do the best they can academically and to graduate. What I also like is that they help each other a lot.”
The volleyball team carried a GPA of 3.46, baseball had a 3.37, golf finished with a 3.11, men’s basketball had a 3.03 and women’s basketball had a 2.96. Individually, 13 student athletes had 4.0 GPAs.
“I will tip our hats to our coaches, to our Learning Skills Center and Rena Gower, to our faculty and to all of the people that make this happen. This is the true definition of team success. It’s not only the athletic department, but the whole college,” says Bowers.
This is the fourth consecutive semester where the athletic department has had a cumulative GPA over 3.0.
