“This is a very impressive group, not just in the athletic arena, but in the academic arena. If you add up all 24, their collective GPA is 96.7,” said Columbia Athletic Director Michael Leonard. “Ultimately, what I’m really proud of is they have done a great job with our school climate. They’ve made it a great, positive school community. I’m really proud of all of them.”
