LAWRENCE, Kan. – Kansas Athletics student-athletes recorded a combined 3.29 department grade-point average during the 2022 spring semester, an increase from a 3.23 department-wide GPA in the 2021 fall semester.

“We are incredibly proud of our student-athletes and our academic staff for their continued commitment to exceptional performance in the classroom,” said Director of Athletics Travis Goff. “This achievement is a fitting way to complete a semester that saw our Men’s Basketball program reach the pinnacle of the sport and it reiterates our ambition to win championships without compromising our foundational commitment to education. I look forward to our student-athletes building off this strong performance and continuing to flourish in the classroom during the 2022-23 academic year. Special congratulations are in order for Coach Lindsay Kuhle and the women’s golf team for raising the bar and setting a new program GPA record.”

Leading the way for Kansas was the women’s golf team, which set a new program record with a 3.79 GPA for the semester.
