BEAVERS POST SOLID GPA’S
American River College posted its’ second highest team gpa ever, according to head coach Doug Jumelet. The 2014 squad had a combined 2.72 grade point average, which fell just short of the teams’ all-time high, a 2.84 which was set in 2013. 13 of the 26 players posted a 3.0 gpa or better, with sophomore pitcher Jay Standen (Woodcreek) leading the way with a 4.0. One player fell just short with a 2.96 for the Spring semester.
“We are very proud of our guys and their efforts in the classroom. As a staff we work very hard to instill in them the importance of doing well in the classroom and it is obvious that they bought in. (Assistant Coach) Tim Fitzgerald in particular has done great job helping our players to become better students while also striving for success on the field,” said head coach Doug Jumelet.
