The brilliant minds of the Louisville student-athletes deserves recognition. Yesterday, Louisville announced the 467 student-athletes were named to the Athletic Director's Honor Roll.
To qualify, student-athletes must have a 3.0 GPA or better. This was the 23rd straight semester where all student-athletes combined for higher than a 3.0 GPA. The average GPA for the spring semester was 3.256.
Louisville achieved a 91% graduation rate per a report by the NCAA. This is the best mark for a graduation rate at UofL.
Field hockey had the best mark for the 2021-2022 school year with a team GPA of 3.827.
Lacrosse had the most individual members reach a 4.0 with nine student-athletes reaching the mark.
