'Hurst leads PSAC in academic success

PSAC

Mercyhurst athletics led the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) with an 89 percent Academic Success Rate (ASR) for classes entering between 2003 and 2006. Three Mercyhurst teams (men's and women's tennis and women's golf) had 100 percent ASRs in that time frame.

The information is part of a study showing the PSAC is among the leaders in Division II ASR. From the PSAC release: "While the national average for Division II student-athletes is a respectable 71%, the PSAC carries a 78% success rate as one of 12 Division II conferences above the national standard."
