In recognition of National Student-Athlete Day (4/6), the Bates College Department of Athletics salutes the academic accomplishments of some of Bates' 600-plus varsity athletes. Director of Athletics Kevin McHugh this week is distributing certificates to the top 25 percent of this year's student-athletes, in terms of their cumulative grade point average.
"The Athletic Department salutes two levels of classroom achievement. Scholar-Athletes are those student-athletes whose cumulative grade point average is in the top ten percent of our 600-plus sport participants. That meant maintaining through last fall semester a cumulative grade point average of 3.67 or better.
Those who make the Academic Honor Roll are the student-athletes whose cumulative grade point average is in the top twenty five percent of all our athletes and that range for this year through Fall 2011 was between 3.47 and 3.66."
Nearly 15% of the total athletes came from the swimming and diving team (20 total). That is tops in the athletic department. What an accomplishment!
