App State Student-Athletes Extend 3.0 GPA Streak to 10 Years


BOONE, N.C. – Reaching a full decade, App State student-athletes extended their impressive streak to 10 consecutive years with a cumulative GPA above 3.0 thanks to a strong showing during the 2022 spring.

The Mountaineers ended the spring with a 3.16 semester GPA for all student-athletes, helping raise the cumulative GPA for all student-athletes to 3.23.

Every program at App State finished the spring with a semester GPA above 2.9, led by a 3.71 from soccer, a 3.56 from women’s golf, a 3.53 for volleyball, a 3.46 from men’s cross country and a 3.43 from women’s cross country.

Every program at App State also has a cumulative GPA above 2.9, led by women’s soccer with a 3.71 and women’s golf with a 3.66. On the men’s side, cross country leads the way with a 3.34.

In total, App State had 185 student-athletes make either the Chancellor’s List or Dean’s List for the 2022 spring semester.

The 62 student-athletes on the Chancellor’s List were full-time students with a GPA of 3.85 or higher during the spring, with inclusion determined solely by the performance in courses that earn credits toward graduation.

Additionally, the 123 members of the Dean’s List either posted a GPA of 3.45 or higher while carrying 12-14 academic hours or a GPA of 3.25 or higher while carrying at least 15 academic hours. Every App State Athletics program had at least three team members make the Dean’s List.

Last year, when the Sun Belt Conference last announced academic honors, App State led the league’s members in program-wide GPA for student-athletes, Commissioner’s List selections and Academic Honor Roll selections.
