Quote from Grand Valley State Athletics Director Tim Selgo:
“While we’re very proud of all the competitive success of all our student-athletes, we’re proud of them in other ways as well. This past semester, 59.6 percent of our student-athletes achieved a three-point grade point average or better and have accumulated a total of 3,200 community service hours. Our competitive success is due in large part to the outstanding conference we compete in. In this year’s Directors’ Cup standings, four our conference members finished in the top 20.”
Minnesota State-Mankato, Central Missouri, Abilene Christian and Indianapolis rounded out the Top 5.
