Grand Rapids Community College student-athletes had historic seasons in competition but also demonstrated their success in the classroom, with more than 30 earning academic awards.

The Michigan Community College Athletic Association honored two GRCC teams – volleyball and women’s cross country – as All-Academic Teams for having a team GPA of 3.0 or greater. The volleyball team finished with a 3.24 team GPA, and the women’s cross country team earned a 3.17.

Audrey Gower and Alena Visnovsky earned perfect 4.0 GPAs to help the volleyball squad earn the award, while Mariah Vos led her cross country team with a 3.88 GPA.

“We’re proud of our student-athletes for what they accomplished,” Interim Athletic Director Dave Selmon said. “Our coaches and staff emphasize the importance of academics so the students can continue being successful long after their playing days are done. I know they worked hard and faced additional challenges due to the pandemic.”

All eight athletic teams had at least one student-athlete recognized on the MCCAA Academic All-Conference team.
