"Our student-athletes consistently rise above the unprecedented obstacles of the times to achieve sustained success in the classroom," athletic director Dave Heeke said. "The academic excellence of our student-athletes continues its upward trend of the last six years during the extremely challenging times of the last year. Our department's record-breaking academic accomplishments of the last semester are a tremendous tribute to our C.A.T.S Academics staff as well as our student-athletes who display the Bear Down determination of the Wildcat Way."
