HELENA -- The Carroll College Fighting Saints athletic department earned the Cascade Collegiate Conference’s Presidents’ Academic Excellence status, the conference announced.
The award is based on academic merit from the 2019-20 sports calendar.
In order to receive the designation, a department must achieve an overall combined grade-point average of 3.0 or better among its student-athletes that compete in sports that the CCC declares champions in and have 60 percent or higher of student-athletes who are eligible to receive academic all-conference recognition to do so.
Carroll’s CCC-affiliated programs combined for a 3.4 GPA, while 64 percent of its student-athletes were also designated as academic all-CCC.
The Saints were joined by the College of Idaho, Oregon Tech, Bushnell (formerly Northwest Christian) and Northwest as institutions that accomplished the feat.
