Warrior Athletics Earns CCC Presidents’ Cup Academic Excellence Status for Third Straight Year

CORVALLIS, Ore. – LC State Athletics earned the distinction of Cascade Collegiate Conference Presidents’ Academic Excellence status for the third year in a row, joining eight other CCC institutions on this year’s list. Warrior student-athletes, on the 10 teams that compete in the Cascade Conference, finished the school year with a 3.36 grade point average.

In order to receive the designation, a department must achieve an overall combined GPA of 3.0 or better among their student-athletes (men/women) that compete in sports that the CCC declares a champion in, and have at least 60 percent of its student-athletes who are eligible to receive academic all-conference (sophomore standing/3.2 GPA) recognition do so. Tennis is the only LC State sport that is not sponsored by the CCC.

“Warrior athletics exemplifies the perseverance and can-do spirit that has been a hallmark of our institution since 1893,” LC State President Cynthia Pemberton said. “We’re a small college with student-athletes who do big things in competition, the classroom, and life and I could not be prouder.”

LC State had 72 student-athletes earn Academic All-Cascade Conference honors in the 2022-23 school year.

“This is a great accomplishment for our student-athletes,” Athletic Director Brooke Henze said. “A big thank you to our student-athletes that understand the importance of excelling in the classroom as well as in competition. They are lucky to have incredible faculty and staff around the college that understand their schedules and help them reach their goals. I am so proud to see our student-athletes exemplifying the Warrior Way.”
