Success in the Classroom
Both teams had a successful spring on the court, but also in the classroom as well. The Cowgirls finished with a record team GPA which included 5 of the 9 members of the roster recording a perfect 4.0 GPA! It is exciting to see the teams performing well on and off the court as student athletes!
