Bethune-Cookman Football, Women’s Golf Earn NCAA Academic Progress Awards
Bethune-Cookman University football and women’s golf will receive awards from the NCAA for their improved academic progress rates through the 2010-11 academic year. The football team posted a 935 score for the year, exceeding both the old and newly set standards for NCAA academic team eligibility.
Women’s golf posted a perfect 1000 in the review.
“National recognition of the academic success of our athletics programs is a product of a committed effort by our coaching staff, student-athletes and our Office of Student-Athlete Support,” (BCU Athletic Director Lynn) Thompson said. “As we continue to build towards future success, the foundation for winning championships clearly begins with high caliber student-athletes who are mentored and motivated by a staff committed to academic excellence.”
Great news for the Wildcat Nation. And as a bonus, here’s a commercial to buy season tickets for BCU football.
