On the field and in the classroom, it was a great Fall to be a Titan. Berea-Midpark’s competitive success is matched by its academic work, as the Titans had an outstanding first quarter in the classroom with their overall grade-point averages.
Of the roughly 320 Fall season student-athletes registered at Berea-Midpark High School, 210 (66%) recorded a grade point average of 3.5 or higher for the first quarter. Of those 210 student athletes, 120 (38% of athletes) received a grade point average of 4.0 or higher.
“I’m very fortunate to be in a position to witness our talented student athletes relentlessly compete in the classroom the same way they do on our teams” said Berea City School District Athletic Director Adam Howard. “We are beyond proud and excited to share how our student athletes are making a tremendous difference on their teams, in the classroom, and in our community. This is what it means to BE A TITAN!”
The average GPA of a Titan Fall athlete in the first quarter this year was a 3.652. 261 (82%) student-athletes achieved a GPA of 3.0 or greater. A record 28 student-athletes accomplished a GPA for the quarter above 4.5.
The girls cross country team had the highest team grade point average, posting a 4.116 team GPA, highest for an athletic team in recent Berea-Midpark history. The girls soccer team had the second highest team GPA, achieving a 3.911
Assistant Superintendent Mike Draves was extremely impressed with the report. “I am so proud of all of our athletes not only for their performances on the field, court, course or pitch but in the classroom” said Draves. “Berea Midpark High School is now and will be in the future stressing the Student aspect of being a Student Athlete. This proves that the attributes that make athletes successful also translate to academics-grit, determination, hard work, and persistence will always be attributes that our students need to exhibit. I couldn’t be more proud.”
Congratulations go out to our student-athletes, coaches and academic staff for the outstanding results from this past quarter.
