Lady Knights Excel In Classroom

7.12.2013 | KCU Campus

Not only do the KCU Lady Knight Basketball players have an outstanding history on the hardwood, they also set the standard in the classroom. With spring semester grades released at the end of the semester the Lady Knights led the way on campus with a team cumulative grade point average of 3.53 and Coach Arnett was not surprised. "These young ladies are very serious about grades and overall academic achievement. For the past several years the team gpa has hovered around the 3.3 - 3.4 range with regularity. This spring's 3.53 gpa was the highest ever for a KCU Lady Knight team. I am very proud of them for this accomplishment." Seniors-to-be Tanya Bowens and Monica Stevens led the way with perfect 4.0 marks. Not far behind was Junior Katelyn Meyer with a 3.88 for the semester. Jana Glick, Sharonda Jones and graduated Rachel Chester posted 3.6 for the term. Only Chester graduated from the team so grades should continue to be high as the KCU Lady Knights head into the fall semester of another season. NCCAA guidelines recognize teams with a cumulative gpa of 3.4 or higher with a "Scholar Team Award". Congratulations to the Lady Knights on yet another victory, this one in the classroom.
