SALT LAKE CITY- The Utes have been riding high in the 2022 spring season making history in their collective sports and in the classroom. It was announced Wednesday afternoon that for the fifth consecutive semester, and fifth time overall Utah has had all 20 athletic programs hit a grade point average of 3.0 or higher.

This past spring Utah’s 20 sports programs recorded a collective 3.30 GPA, which extended the Utes’ current record of a 3.0 GPA or higher to 32 straight semesters. What makes this streak especially impressive is the added difficulty of managing respective sports and performing them at a high-level.

Leaders Of The Pack

Women’s tennis had the highest GPA this spring semester for the Utes with a 3.863. In men’s sports, the ski team led the way with a 3.438. Utah track and field/cross country posted an impressive 3.537 GPA while in the middle of their season.

Gymnastics has been at the forefront for Utah Athletics in terms of consecutive semesters with a 3.0 or higher. Currently they have had 54 straight semesters hitting the 3.0 mark or more. Men’s skiing, women’s cross country, and volleyball are next in line with 29 consecutive 3.0 GPA semesters.

Other Spring Athletic Academic Notes

This past spring semester saw 54 student-athletes earn a 4.0 GPA. 188 student athletes, or 36% made the Dean’s List and 400, or 83% made the Athletic Director’s Honor Roll (3.0+). All together that means 75% of the Utes’ student-athletes hit the A-B grade range last semester.

2021-2022 Was A Good School Year

Collectively for the 2021-2022 academic school year, the Utes shined in the classroom as much as they did on the field/court/floor. Utah ended the collective school year with a 3.315 GPA coming up just a hair short of the record set last school year of 3.407. Overall 38% of Utah’s student-athletes made the Dean’s List (3.5+) all while maintaining 12 credit hours (full-time enrollment). 75% of Utah’s student-athletes made the Athletic Director’s Honor Roll for the 2021-2022 school year and 11% earned a 4.0 GPA.
