I wanted to take the opportunity to share some of the great things going on in and around our department. First, let me take the time to thank our student-athletes,
The update starts in the classroom where our student-athletes are excelling. The department-wide term GPA for fall 2016 semester was 3.113 with 12 of our 16 teams earning a 3.100 GPA or higher for the term. We had 298 student-athletes make the AD Honor Roll with 171 of those individuals earning a 3.500 GPA or higher. Great job Bobcats!
In some facility news, the construction on the new Sook Academic Center is set for later this summer/fall with a planned completion date of summer 2018. The dream will soon become a reality! Thanks to all the donors who made this happen for our student-athletes! Link
Speaking of Peden, fans, players and coaches will all enjoy a new video board
Another great addition is the new set of bleachers at the Ohio Softball Field. The new seats have been a perfect addition to the venue and make for an even better home field advantage. Link
And let's not forget the new Bobcats van for men's and women's golf! They are traveling in style and playing great on course as well. Link
This spring saw the retirement of President Roderick McDavis (thank you for the amazing work you did for Ohio University!) and the naming of new President Duane Nellis, who will be starting in July. We all look forward to welcoming him and his wife Ruthie to Athens! Link

As we finish another successful season for Ohio Bobcat Athletics, let me take the opportunity to say "Thank You!" again for the tremendous support of our fans, donors and ticket holders. Success is always a team effort. Thanks for being a valuable part of our team!
