GRAND FORKS, N.D. – University of North Dakota Director of Athletics Brian Faison announced today that UND’s 436 student-athletes combined for a 3.185 grade point average during the Fall 2013 semester, the highest fall term GPA in UND Athletics history.

North Dakota’s women’s teams boasted a 3.302 fall GPA while its men’s teams combined for a 3.056 GPA.

“Once again our student-athletes got it done in the classroom in a big way,” said Faison. “We are proud of our academic successes and the great job our coaches and academic services staff do in supporting our student-athletes in their educational pursuits.”

Fifteen of UND's 19 teams achieved at least a 3.0 GPA during the Fall 2013 semester. UND volleyball led the way with a 3.536 team GPA, followed by women’s cross country (3.463), women’s track & field (3.454), men’s cross country (3.417) and women’s swimming & diving (3.409).

During the 2013 fall semester alone, 275 student-athletes achieved at least a 3.0 GPA, accounting for 63 percent of UND's total student-athlete population. Sixty of those student-athletes recorded a perfect 4.0 GPA during the fall, 29 of whom boast a cumulative 4.0 GPA.

During Thursday’s women’s basketball game against Weber State, UND Athletics will honor its Fall 2013 Athletics Director’s Honor Roll, which is comprised of 312 student-athletes who achieved either a Fall 2013 semester or cumulative 3.0 grade point average. The presentation will take place at halftime.
