Greyhounds Continue To Reach New Heights In Classroom

June 27, 2016

BALTIMORE - Loyola University Maryland student-athletes continued their outstanding work in the classroom during the 2015-2016 academic year, setting records for cumulative grade-point averages in the fall semester only to break them in the spring.

The Greyhounds’ more than 400 student-athletes posted a combined 3.370 GPA during the spring semester, the best in recorded history. That mark edged the fall standard of 3.319 that was the previous high. Additionally, a record 30 student-athletes posted perfect 4.0 GPAs during the spring

Cumulatively, student-athletes raised their overall cumulative GPA to 3.275, a bump from the end of the fall semester’s 3.24 that was also the best in school history. A total of 152 Greyhounds were named to the Loyola Dean’s List in the spring, bringing the total for the academic year to 292 who achieved that plateau.

“Our student-athletes are continuing to raise the bar for academic excellence,” said Colleen Campbell, Loyola’s director of student-athlete support services. “They recently concluded statistically the best year in our history, and we thrilled to see their hard work and dedication pay off. Without the support of faculty, staff, coaches and administrators, these achievements would not have been possible.”

Over the last five academic years, student-athletes’ cumulative GPAs have risen to the current mark from 3.084 in 2011-2012.

Sixteen of the Greyhounds’ teams finished the fall semester with a GPA better than 3.1, both cumulatively and for the term. The women’s tennis team leads the athletic department with a cumulative GPA of 3.548, while the women’s track and field squad had a fall GPA of 3.613, topping the department.

The following student-athletes earned 4.0 GPAs during the fall semester: Shannon Aikens (women’s lacrosse), Alden Bauman (women’s swimming and diving), Taylor Caldwell (women’s lacrosse), Jake Campbell (men’s soccer) Cara Egan (women’s swimming and diving), Connor Flach (men’s golf), Amanda Ignacio (women’s lacrosse), Maddy Lesher (women’s lacrosse), Liam Marmo (men’s rowing), Bailey Mathis (women’s lacrosse), Madelene McDonald (women’s basketball), Tori McDonald (women’s lacrosse), Caitlyn McGuinness (women’s cross country & track), Kelly McShea (women’s volleyball), Casie Morgan (women’s cross country), Haleigh Morgus (women’s tennis), Chris Myers (men’s lacrosse), Madalyn Myers (women’s swimming and diving), Connor Pietrak (men’s tennis), Tom Porth (men’s cross country), Franz Rassman (men’s basketball), Kait Richter (women’s swimming and diving), Jenny Riley (women’s swimming and diving), Robert Scherba (men’s rowing), Devon Terwilliger (women’s track and field), Sarah Trent (women’s swimming and diving), Sean Tuohy Jr. (men’s basketball), Laurin Vogel (men’s soccer), Erika Winkler (women’s swimming and diving) and Kristen Yanchoris (women’s lacrosse).
