BRENHAM, Tx (KWKT) — Blinn College's baseball, softball, and volleyball teams have all earned NJCAA All-Academic recognition.
To earn the recognition the team must have a cumulative GPA of at least a 3.0. The baseball program came in at 3.25, softball 3.15, and the national championship volleyball team recorded a 3.01.
The NJCAA also recognized 6 Buccaneer student athletes for their academic achievements.
“I think it goes back to the student athletes, that earning a college degree is the most important thing to them,” said Blinn College Athletic Director Scott Schumacher
The Blinn College baseball team has now earned all-academic recognition for 5 years in a row. It also marks the fourth time the softball program has earned academic honors in the past five years.
