ATH: App State Student-Athletes Extend 3.0 GPA Streak to 21 Semesters


BOONE, N.C. — App State student-athletes extended their impressive streak to 21 consecutive semesters with a cumulative GPA above 3.0 thanks to their impressive academic performances during the 2022 fall.

The Mountaineers ended the fall with a 3.13 semester GPA for all student-athletes, contributing to a 3.21 cumulative GPA for all student-athletes. The semester average jumped 0.13 points from the 2021 fall to the 2022 fall.

Additionally, 190 student-athletes earned recognition on either the Chancellor’s List or Dean’s List.

The 65 student-athletes on the Chancellor’s List were full-time students with a GPA of 3.85 or higher during the fall, with inclusion determined solely by the performance in courses that earn credits toward graduation.

The 125 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 two team members make the Dean’s List.

Every program at App State finished the fall with a semester GPA above 2.8, led by a 3.49 from volleyball. Every program at App State also has a cumulative GPA above 2.95, led by soccer with a 3.6.

On the men’s side, cross country led the way with a 3.24 semester GPA and is No. 1 with a 3.379 cumulative GPA.

In September, when the Sun Belt Conference had more than 2,000 student-athletes named to the Commissioner’s List and Academic Honor Roll for the 2021-22 school year, App State had a league-high 211 selections on the two lists.
