Student athletes make college commitmentsTwenty-two Columbia student athletes announced at a press conference on Thursday where they will play college sports next year. The group has been just as successful in the classroom as they have been in competition, earning a combined 96 GPA.

“I couldn’t be more proud of these student athletes,” said Columbia Athletic Director Michael Leonard. “They’ve done a great job and left their mark.”
