Another Great End to the Semester

Many people will tell you that student athletes grades tend to slip once their sport ends and they are no longer on a set schedule.  For swimming, the end of two-a-day practices, the promise of warm, sunny spring days, and the end of the school year in sight can sometimes lead to a drop in GPA.  This had been the case for Wabash Swimming and Diving for the past two years.  Early in the fall this year, I addressed the issue to the team and told them they need to step up this spring and be leaders in the classroom.  After reviewing the team grades from the spring semester, I am very proud to announce that team grabbed a 3.2 GPA in the spring semester, the same as in the fall.  We had a number of individuals that made a huge jump in their GPA from the fall to the spring, which certainly made me smile.  Eight members of the team earned a GPA of 3.7 or better, and six of those eight had a 3.9 or higher!  To see the team have such discipline in all areas of their life is quite exciting and rewarding and will serve them well in the next stages of their careers.  I am very excited to continue to build on the team’s academic success next year and for years to come!  Congratulations to the team on taking the term STUDENT-ATHLETE to heart!
