The University of Akron women's basketball team posted high marks in the classroom, finishing with a 3.43 cumulative team GPA. In addition, 10 of 13 student-athletes on the squad made the Dean's List this year.
"I am very proud of our young ladies' accomplishments in the classroom," said Kest. "Academics are very important, and having 10 of 13 student-athletes on the Dean's List shows how disciplined they are. It is not easy to balance classwork and athletics, and these results demonstrate how dedicated this group is to performing at a high level both on and off the court."
