CLEMSON, S.C. - Nine of Clemson’s athletic programs recorded semester grade point ratios above a 3.0, and 234 student-athletes posted spring semester marks at 3.0 and above, according to data provided by the University Office of Institutional Research.

Baseball, men’s and women’s soccer, rowing, volleyball, diving, women’s golf and men’s and women’s tennis each eclipsed 3.0 as a team, with women’s tennis, coming off its 10th NCAA Sweet 16 appearance in the last 12 seasons, posting a department-high 3.58 semester GPA.

The 2014 ACC Champion men’s soccer team set a new program record with its 3.30 GPA for the semester and also had a record 21 out of 24 players make the Clemson Honor Roll for the semester. The baseball team, currently set to begin NCAA Regional play, recorded a 3.04 semester mark, the second highest ever recorded by the squad. Additionally, rowing’s 3.40 marked a program best.
