"In addition to excelling in athletics competition, our student athletes continue to achieve success in the classroom and community,” commented UMKC director of athletics Carla Wilson. “The extraordinary determination and effort they display and put forth toward their academic studies is a tremendous source of pride for not only the Athletics Department, but for the entire institution."
