The Knights ranked first of all C-USA baseball teams with an annual grade-point average of 3.174 to receive the league’s Sports Academic Award.

“I’m extremely proud of the academic efforts of our team this past year,” said head coach Terry Rooney. “We continually talk about succeeding at the highest level both academically and athletically.”

UCF recorded its highest team GPA in the fall with a 3.2 mark. Then one semester later, the Black and Gold finished with its highest spring cumulative team GPA at 3.1.

A total of 23 Knights from last year’s roster received a spot on the C-USA Commissioner’s Honor Roll for having a GPA of 3.0 or better.
