ANCHORAGE - In addition to their unprecedented competitive success for the 2011-12 campaign, University of Alaska Anchorage student-athletes continued their remarkable success in the classroom this year, combining for a 3.18 grade point average over both semesters. After posting a 3.17 mark in the fall, the Seawolves improved that number to 3.19 for the spring term.

Meanwhile, 18 student-athletes achieved 4.0 GPAs for the spring semester, including an unprecedented 13 who achieved a perfect mark throughout the entire calendar year. Ten of the school's 11 teams earned combined GPAs of 3.0 or better for the academic year, led by the men's ski team at 3.55.

"We are extremely proud of the commitment to academics shown by our students, coaches and staff," said Dr. Steve Cobb, UAA director of athletics. "This year's group of student-athletes has achieved at a high level all-around, and displayed great character in doing so."

On the field of play, teams or individuals from 10 of UAA's 11 sports earned NCAA postseason berths in 2011-12, including top-15 national finishes for men's and women's track & field, men's and women's skiing, men's and women's cross country, and women's basketball.
