Kansas City, Mo. - Following the announcement of six sports being named 2007-08 Scholar Teams at Shorter College, men's soccer has received further recognition by being named the highest men's soccer team GPA in the nation. The Hawks' impressive 3.45 GPA put them above second place Embry-Riddle (Ariz.), who finished with a 3.37.

"I'm extremely proud of all the players on this team," said head coach Josh Severns. "This is a credit to the older players that demanded academic excellence, and the way it has followed through to the younger guys. The study halls and academic times that we enforce really show their importance with honors like this."

Additionally, the Lady Hawks volleyball team tied men's soccer for Shorter's personal best academic team, also with a 3.45 GPA.

NAIA student-athletes around the country work diligently throughout the year for academic excellence at their respective institutions. This year over 750 NAIA teams earned at least a 3.0 team grade point average (on a 4.0 scale) during the 2007-08 academic year.
