The 31 UH Hilo honorees for 2018-2019 are three more than the Vulcans had in the 2017–2018 school year.
The Office of Intercollegiate Athletics announced that 31 University of Hawaii at Hilo student-athletes are recipients of the Division II Athletics Directors Association Academic Achievement Awards for the 2018-2019 academic year. Now in its 12th year, the program recognizes the academic accomplishments of student-athletes at the Division II level.
“We have been putting an emphasis on doing better in the classroom, and I feel like we are accomplishing that across the board,” says Patrick Guillen, Vulcan athletic director. “Our team GPA’s are higher than they have ever been.”
The 31 UH Hilo honorees are three more than the Vulcans had in the 2017–2018 school year.
To be eligible, the student-athlete must have a cumulative grade point average of 3.5 or higher, have attended their school a minimum of two years (four semesters) and have been an active member of their team during this past academic year (including redshirts).
