The members of the 2007 women's soccer team are this week's CMU Scholar-Athletes of the Week.
For the third year in a row, the team has been recognized for having the highest team grade-point average in the nation.
CMU was given the Team Academic Award by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA), an honor bestowed upon any team that posts a cumulative grade-point average of 3.0 or better during the 2006-2007 academic year. The NSCAA recognized 297 women’s soccer programs for this achievement in 2007, and the Chippewas’ 3.61 team GPA was the highest of all NCAA Division I programs, tied for first along with Murray State University.
Every member of the CMU program has a grade-point average of 3.0 or higher. At the conclusion of the 2006-2007 semester, 15 student-athletes held a GPA of better than 3.5, with eight of those 15 carrying a GPA above 3.80. Junior goalkeeper Kristen Hubright sports a perfect 4.0 GPA.
Each week, select student-athletes will be featured as the CMU Scholar-Athlete of the Week.
