It may have been a disappointing fall with no competition on the fields of play, but the Lumberjacks did not disappoint in the classroom

Not only did the Humboldt State student athletes post a far higher median GPA than that of the student body for the semester, but three women’s teams set new 10-year highs.

The HSU student athletes had a median GPA of 3.38, compared to student body median GPA of 3.16, while 36 athletes were named President Scholars for achieving a GPA of at least 3.85.

In addition, 10 HSU teams achieved a cumulative GPA of at least 3.00, including women’s basketball (3.58), rowing (3.50) and softball (3.47), which each set a 10-year high.

“I am extremely proud of our student athletes for the success in the classroom,” said Humboldt State University Department of Athletics’ Academic Advisor Sei Hee Hwang. “We know it’s been a challenging time for everyone, but every semester I am constantly reminded how resilient and adaptable our student athletes are.”

A total of 44 student athletes were named to the Dean’s list with a GPA of at least 3.50, while 108 student athletes achieved a GPA of at least a 3.5.
