Baldwin City, Kan. – Baker University's men's athletic program finished the 2013-14 academic year with the highest overall GPA of all 10 institutions in the Heart of America Athletic Conference, announced by the conference office.
For that honor, Baker was awarded a $1,000 scholarship to a current male student-athlete of their choosing.
Receiving the HAAC Commissioner's GPA Award and scholarship is senior Zach Aldrich. The Topeka, Kan., native is a current member of the BU men's tennis team and plans to graduate this May with a degree in business.
This marks the second-straight year the Baker men's athletics program has received this award. Ethan Hays of the men's soccer team received the scholarship a year ago.
"I'm extremely proud of our student-athletes' performance in the classroom," said Director of Athletics Theresa Yetmar. "It speaks to their ability to balance priorities and achieve excellence. Our coaches do a tremendous job of supporting our student-athletes in their quest to complete their degree and find their true passion in life."
Baker University is committed to assuring student learning, and developing confident, competent and responsible contributors to society.
