UMHB baseball recognized for achievements on and off the field
The University of Mary Hardin-Baylor baseball team was honored with an inaugural American Baseball Coaches Association’s (ABCA) Team Academic Excellence Award. To be eligible for the honor, teams must maintain a 3.00 team grade point average on a 4.0 scale. The Cru carried a cumulative 3.34 GPA at the end of the 2016 season to qualify for the award.
“We are extremely proud to recognize the academic accomplishments of so many of our member coaches’ programs this year,” said ABCA Executive Director Craig Keilitz. “This award highlights our coaches’ commitment to developing student-athletes that excel both on and off the field, and we’re proud of these student-athletes for their success in the classroom.”
