July 17, 2015 — On Wednesday, the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) announced the winners of their Scholar-Teams for 2014-15. The Bryan Lions Volleyball, Women’s Soccer, and Men’s Basketball teams are honored by their hard work in the classroom and their academic success.
For a team to be considered for the NAIA Scholar-Team award, it must have a minimum 3.0 grade point average (on a 4.0 scale) as defined by the institution. The team grade point average includes all eligible varsity student-athletes.
All three teams are impressive, but the Volleyball team finished in front of the pack with the highest grade point average, 3.20. The Lady Lion’s Soccer Team followed not too far behind with a 3.18 team GPA, and the Men’s Basketball team earned a solid 3.05 GPA.
There is a total of 1,502 teams that have been given the distinction of Scholar-Teams for the 2014-15 academic year.
