Big fall semester in classroom for West Liberty student-athletes

WEST LIBERTY - West Liberty University director of athletics Jim Watson is celebrating another strong performance by Hilltopper student-athletes during the fall semester of the 2013-14 academic year.

More than 300 student-athletes from West Liberty's 16 intercollegiate sports combined for a 2.97 GPA during the fall, the best showing yet for the department as a whole.

"We have been flirting with that 3.0 mark for the department overall for the last few years and this is as close as we've come," Watson said. "It's a tribute to the dedication of our student-athletes and the commitment of our coaches to identify and recruit quality student-athletes and support their academic accomplishments at the university.

Hilltopper mens basketball standout C.J. Hester was an NCAA Division II Academic All-American as a sophomore while WLU senior volleyball standout Rachel Zeigler collected her second consecutive NCAA Division II Academic All-District Award in November.
