UNCW's student-athletes have performed well again in the classroom, according to the NCAA's latest Graduation Success Rate, the governing body's most accurate tool that tracks the academic progression of student-athletes.
 
According to figures released Tuesday by NCAA officials, UNCW's 19 intercollegiate teams achieved a GSR of 88 percent.
 
"Our student-athletes continue to be high achievers," said Jimmy Bass, UNCW's veteran athletic director. "They are very dedicated, both in athletic arena and classroom, and are busy preparing themselves for the future."
