UK Athletics posted a 3.181 grade point average this spring, the 12th straight semester the department has reached Mitch Barnhart’s goal of a 3.0 GPA or higher. Eighteen of Kentucky’s 20 sports teams posted spring GPAs higher than 3.0, while nine finished with a 3.4 or higher. The highest of all was women’s cross country (3.702), followed by women’s swimming and diving (3.566), and men’s golf (3.508). Way to go, ladies and gents.
