    UIC Student-Athletes Record Another Record-Setting Semester

    Jan. 13, 2012

    CHICAGO -For the second-straight semester, UIC student-athletes compiled a 3.0 grade-point-average during the 2011 Fall Semester, Athletic Director Jim Schmidt and Assistant Athletic Director for Academic Services Sam Rush announced Friday. The collective 3.0 GPA represents the second-best mark in school history, just behind last semester's 3.06 mark.

    Six of the Flames' 19 teams recorded a GPA of 3.0 or higher, including five programs above a 3.2. Individually, 165 student-athletes compiled a GPA of 3.0 or better, with a total of 31 achieving a perfect 4.0 mark.

    "I want to congratulate our student-athletes on another outstanding semester in the classroom, said Schmidt. "Our department has achieved three-of its best semesters in the past year, and a lot of hard work by some very dedicated people factors into those results. Our student-athletes continue to be great representatives and ambassadors for our university, and they deserve to be commended for that."

    The UIC men's tennis team finished the fall term with the top cumulative GPA among all Flames teams, compiling an impressive 3.66 mark. For the second-straight semester, head women's tennis coach Shannon Tully's team finished with the top GPA among women's teams, with a 3.57 collective mark.

    The women's swimming & diving team achieved a 3.49 cumulative GPA, after finishing with a 3.48 mark during the 2011 spring semester. The softball team, less than eight months after capturing the Horizon League Tournament Championship, compiled a 3.41 GPA during the fall.

    Also finishing the fall semester above the 3.0 team threshold was the women's gymnastics (3.25) and women's cross country (3.03 squads). The men's cross country (2.99), baseball (2.97), men's soccer (2.95), volleyball (2.94) and women's track & field (2.93) teams all finished with at least a 2.9 cumulative team GPA.
