UHV Sports Maintain High Academic Standards
You always hear about college sports and how the students are only their for the sports and don't take their education seriously. That is a problem at a lot of schools but it's nice to see that isn't the case at the University of Houston-Victoria. The school was just recognizes by the National Association of Collegiate Athletics with 4 Scholar Team Awards.
UHV's softball, women's soccer, women's golf, and men's soccer all were recognized for their high grade point averages. Softball had a team average of 3.39, women's soccer 3.31, women's golf 3.16, and men's soccer 3.05.
For a team to be considered for the NAIA Scholar-Team award, it must have a minimum 3.0 grade point average (on a 4.0 scale) as defined by the institution. The team GPA includes all eligible varsity student-athletes.
