There were 36 Warriors who earned at least a 3.0 grade-point average for the recently completed spring semester. In addition, there were three Warriors who had 2.98 GPAs.
Long-snapper Noah Borden and running backs Genta Ito and Steven Lakalaka each posted 4.0 GPAs. Lakalaka, who earned a bachelor’s degree in kinesiology on May 13, plans to take courses toward his goal of becoming a physician’s assistant.
“There’s a group that did very well,” UH coach Nick Rolovich said. “There’s also a handful of guys that did extremely poorly, and that affected our whole team’s GPA.”
The Warriors’ cumulative GPA was 2.73.
“I’m disappointed in the guys who didn’t take the challenge to have their best semester,” Rolovich said. “It’s like a game. There are six, eight guys who didn’t do hardly anything and think they should win. Our whole team loses because our goal was not met.”
Rolovich said there will be “consequences” for players who did poorly academically.
