195 Pioneers achieve academic honors

For the eighth consecutive year, the University of Wisconsin-Platteville student-athletes had a higher grade-point average than the student body as a whole.

The Pioneer student-athletes compiled an 2.977 grade-point average for the 2007-08 academic year, Athletic Director Mark Molesworth reported, noting the general student body overall g.p.a. was 2.867.

One-hundred and ninety-five athletes made the Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Scholastic Honor Roll as well as the school's Gabe Miller Academic Honor Roll for having above a 3.00 g.p.a during the year. The latter list is named in honor of Gabe Miller, who died just weeks after playing on the Pioneers' 1995 undefeated national championship basketball team. More than 1,700 UWP student-athletes have been named Gabe Miller Academic Scholars.
