Athletics receives academic awards
ASU athletes received academic honors at the Sun Belt Conference spring meetings in Destin, Fla., last week.

For the last three years, the student-athlete graduation has been more than 50 percent. Two advisors help with class scheduling, visiting with instructors on academic progress for individual students, and overseeing tutorial help with class work. ASU also received the team academic awards for men’s golf, baseball, and women’s tennis at the league’s honors banquet.
