UHV Sports Teams Get NAIA Honors

Four UHV sports teams get NAIA national academic recognition.

Four of the six University of Houston-Victoria athletic teams were recognized as NAIA Scholar-Teams on Tuesday by the National Association of Collegiate Athletics.

A total of 1,677 teams earned the distinction for the 2016-17 academic year. For a team to be considered for the NAIA Scholar-Team award, it must have a minimum 3.0 grade point average (on a 4.0 scale) as defined by the institution. The team GPA includes all eligible varsity student-athletes.

UHV teams recognized included softball (3.39 GPA), women’s soccer (3.31), women’s golf (3.16) and men’s soccer (3.05). Last year, only the UHV softball and women’s soccer programs were recognized.
