Student-athletes honored for academic performance

Eighty University of Denver student-athletes received honors for performing at the highest level in the classroom during the fall quarter. Eighteen student-athletes were honored as Hornbeck Scholars, while 62 were named to the Dean’s List.

The Hornbeck Scholars List recognizes undergraduate students who, in a given quarter, have earned a 4.0 grade-point average while taking between 12 and 14 credit hours. The Hornbeck Scholar honor is named in memory of Stanley Kuhl Hornbeck, a DU graduate elected to a Rhodes scholarship in 1904, the first year of Rhodes scholarship eligibility for American students.

Men’s swimming led the way with four student-athletes recording 4.0 GPAs, while women’s soccer and hockey each had three student-athletes represented.

The Dean’s List honors undergraduate students who have achieved a quarterly GPA of 3.75 or above while taking at least 15 credit hours. Men’s lacrosse led the way with eight student-athletes receiving a 3.75 or above, while gymnastics, women’s swimming and women’s skiing all had six student-athletes each.

“We could not be more pleased with the stellar accomplishments of our student-athletes in the classroom,” says Peg Bradley-Doppes, vice chancellor of athletics, recreation and Ritchie Center operations. “To have such a multitude of young men and women who dedicate themselves to being the best on and off the fields of play speaks volumes to the values our university seeks to promote.”
