Athletics, Greek Life release spring grade reports


Published (Volume 77, No. 3)


The Skyhawk volleyball team took top academic honors for student athletes earlier this year, while Alpha Gamma Rho and Alpha Delta Pi lead the UTM greek system in grades.

Women’s sports captured the top five intercollegiate rankings in academics, including volleyball with a 3.68, tennis with a 3.65, cross country with a 3.52 and softball with a 3.40. The female student athlete average GPA was 3.33.

Men’s tennis captured a 3.06 GPA for the spring, the highest of the male student athletes.

The Skyhawk cheerleading squad, a coed team, brought in a 2.18 GPA, well below the 2.88 department average.

“We work with the Student Success Center for our ‘at risk’ athletes” said Bill Kaler, assistant athletic director.

Kaler also said that 107 student athletes had made the Dean’s List for spring 2004, while only five athletes had been placed on academic probation.

UTM athletics received a league-high 11 Ohio Valley Conference Medals of Honor, with 81 student-athletes named to the Commissioner’s Honor Roll.  Neither rodeo nor cheerleading averages are reported to the OVC.

Greeks show improvement from fall

Rankings for sororities did not change from the fall 2003, with the exception of Alpha Kappa Alpha being added for the reporting period.

“I’m pleased with the progress shown last spring,” said Louis Ragsdale, Coordinator for Student Organizations and Greek Life.

Alpha Delta Pi brought in a 3.39 GPA for the spring, an increase of 0.17 from the fall. Joining ADPi above the sorority average were Chi Omega with a 3.26 GPA and Alpha Omicron Pi with a 3.14.

Among NPHC sororities, Delta Sigma Theta tallied a 2.76 GPA, Alpha Kappa Alpha had a 2.66 and Zeta Phi Beta a 2.39.

Alpha Gamma Rho notched a 3.03 GPA, the highest among IFC and NPHC fraternities. Kappa Alpha Psi raised its fall average by 0.55 to take top ranking among NPHC fraternities.
