PSAC Release

KUTZTOWN – Kutztown University has reached new heights for academic excellence. The Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference announced Monday that 180 KU student-athletes have been named PSAC Scholar-Athletes for the 2017-18 academic year, a school-record by nearly 20.

2018 marks the 12th straight year KU has had 100 or more student-athletes on the PSAC Scholar-Athlete squad, and breaks the previous record of 162 from 2016.

132 of the 180 were female student-athletes for KU, while 48 were male.

In order to earn scholar-athlete recognition, a student-athlete must have compiled a cumulative grade

point average of 3.25 or above.

As a conference, the PSAC set a new record of 3,053 Scholar-Athletes from its 18 institutions. The 3,053 Scholar-Athlete total marks 42 percent of the student-athlete population. Both of these numbers break the previous record of 2,934 and 41 percent set in 2017. The league has now registered at least a 30 percent rate for 10 straight years.

Gannon paced the league with a 56 percent scholar-athlete rate, while Seton Hill held a 52 percent mark. For the fourth consecutive year, Mercyhurst has the most scholar-athletes with 308, while West Chester is second with 266.
