In the fall, Arkansas achieved a cumulative GPA of 3.33 and in the spring finished with a cumulative GPA of 3.26. Freshman Terrell and sophomore Herndon led the program with an outstanding 4.0 GPA.

“We are proud of our team’s academic achievements,” said head coach Andy Jackson. “They apply themselves and it always is good to see hard work be recognized.”

All student-athletes whose names appear on the NCAA, NAIA or Junior/Community College eligibility form and completed one or more varsity matches are eligible. In order to earn ITA Scholar-Athlete Status a player must meet the following criteria: 1.) be a varsity letter winner, 2.) have a GPA of at least 3.50 for the current academic year, and 3.) have been enrolled at their present school for at least two semesters.
