Shippensburg University‘s Raiders set a new record for Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) Scholar-Athletes. The conference office announced Monday that 200 Raiders were recipients of the honor for the 2019-20 academic year. Data was distributed by the conference office.

A PSAC Scholar-Athlete has maintained a 3.25 cumulative grade-point average (GPA) while competing in an intercollegiate varsity sport.

This is the eighth time in the last 10 years that Shippensburg has matched or surpassed a new record total for PSAC Scholar-Athletes. The 2019-20 accomplishment shatters the previous mark by 34 student-athletes. SU had a record total of 166 PSAC Scholar-Athletes last academic year (2018-19). Other record enhancements in recent years had occurred in increments of two (164 in 2017-18, 162 in 2014-15 and 2015-16).

SU’s PSAC Scholar-Athlete total includes 123 women and 77 men. Forty-two percent of SU’s student-athletes earned the classification of PSAC Scholar-Athlete. That shatters the previous record of 36% of student-athletes set in 2014-15.

Data was first compiled by the PSAC in 1994.
