STARS IN THE CLASSROOM

The Rebels have a long-standing tradition of success on the courts. Off the courts, they have been outstanding. In 2014, the Rebels received the ITA All-Academic Team Award for an unprecedented 18th consecutive year.

The Rebels were one of nine Southeastern Conference teams to earn the ITA All-Academic Team Award.      

This award honors teams with outstanding academic achievements, requiring a minimum overall 3.2 grade point average to be considered.  The Rebels posted an impressive 3.52 cumulative team GPA for the year.

“To receive this award 18 straight years is a tribute to the players, who are dedicated to being outstanding in the classroom as well as on the court,” head coach Mark Beyers said. “They are very deserving of this distinction. These honors are also a direct reflection of the tremendous support we receive from the university, the athletics administration and the academic staff.”

The 1997 team was one of only three teams in the nation to be named an ITA All-Academic Team and finish ranked in the top 10. The 1998 team had the highest grade point average in the nation with a 3.69. In 1999, the Lady Rebels were the only top-10 team in the nation to earn this distinction. In 2012, the Rebels were one of four teams to earn this distinction and end the year in the top 20.
