USC Athletics Fall Semester Report Card

Stephen Dunn

It's an underrated part of the experience, but performing in the classroom can be just as important as work accomplished on the field for USC athletes.

USC student-athletes combined to post a 2.68 term GPA with 288 student-athletes posting a 3.0 or higher GPA during the fall semester. The last time USC had this many student-athletes with GPA's of 3.0 or higher was actually back in the spring of 2009.

The women's golf team finished the semester as the top scholars, boasting a 3.40 overall team GPA.

Finishing just behind in an honorable second place, women's cross country posted a 3.38 GPA while women's swimming and diving posted an impressive 3.24 to round out the top three Trojan programs.

The Women of Troy are the defending golf National Champions and enter this season as the No. 1 ranked squad, working to secure the 100th team National Championship in school history.

This news certainly pleases Athletic Director Pat Haden, who has always publicly supported the academic side of collegiate athletics, rewarding the Women of Troy this weekend with an opportunity of a lifetime.

In a tremendous year for growth and improvement across the board, men's basketball and women's cross country took the greatest leap from 2012. Baseball and women's volleyball also made massive strides from last semester because as Pat Haden said, "If we are not in the mood of continuous improvement, I am not doing my job."

No. 5 ranked men's volleyball and swimming earned highest honors in men's athletics, each attaining 3.02 overall GPA's in the Fall.

In terms of exemplary scholar-athletes, 102 student-athletes made the Dean's List, including 12 perfectionists who achieved an outstanding 4.0 GPA in the classroom. These are just part of the overall package USC athletes continue to provide on and off the field.
