OLLU has historic number of conference scholar-athletes, plus best GPA ever with 3.17

Pursuing excellence and coping with changes to spring classes due to COVID-19, a total of 965 student-athletes earned the distinction of Red River Athletic Conference (RRAC) Scholar-Athlete for the 2019-2020 academic year. OLLU is proud to announce its largest class of scholar-athletes – 147 – who have earned Scholar-Athlete recognition.
