LEXINGTON, Ky. – Yet again, the Kentucky Wildcats have reached their collective goal of a 3.0 department-wide grade-point average.
UK Athletics’ scholarship athletes combined for a 3.143 GPA during the fall semester, marking the ninth straight semester they have surpassed the 3.0 threshold. The high marks come on the heels of a cumulative department-wide GPA of 3.157 in the spring.
“Our students continue to excel in the classroom, taking advantage of the opportunities they have to grow both academically and athletically,” Athletics Director Mitch Barnhart said. “Academics are central to our mission here at UK and I’m proud this level of achievement has become the norm. I want to congratulate our students for their dedication.”
