LTC Athletes Earn 3.22 GPA

Student athletes at Lincoln Trail College combined for a 3.22 GPA during the 2015-16 academic year.

“I’m extremely proud of what our student athletes accomplished in the classroom,” said Athletic Director Kevin Bowers. “Our athletes have a very rigorous schedule between their academic schedules, practices and games. This goes to show how hard they work and how that hard work pays off.”

The softball team had a 3.66 GPA. The volleyball team combined for a GPA of 3.37 and the baseball team was not far behind with a 3.30 GPA. Golfers combined for a 3.0 GPA, followed by the men’s basketball team’s 2.94 GPA and the women’s basketball team’s 2.89 GPA.

“Our coaches work hard to give our athletes the tools they need to succeed in the classroom,” said Bowers. “They monitor the progress of how their players are performing academically and they work closely with instructors and staff to make sure that they can get any additional help they may need.”
