FORT COLLINS, Colo. - While the Colorado State track and field team was hard at work this offseason on the track its most impressive accomplishment came in the classroom, ending the fall semester with a cumulative grade-point-average above 3.0.
"Our coaching staff makes it a priority to recruit student athletes that are serious about getting a quality education and graduating from CSU," Head Coach Brian Bedard said. "The staff is also committed to monitoring and encouraging the progress of our athletes not only on the track but in the classroom."
The women completed the semester with a 3.08 GPA, while the men's team finished with a 3.02 GPA.
"Our team goals are a 3.2 GPA and we will continue to push for that goal but I feel good about the progress that some of our athletes have made this semester, " added Bedard. "Our academic support services at CSU has never been better and I feel like we are all striving for the same goals. We want to improve our academic success and graduation numbers each year, while addressing any special needs that a student-athlete may have."
