A dynamic doubles team and a determined, sharpshooting 1,000-point scorer were among the exceptional student-athletes this spring who brought distinction to Carnegie Mellon University athletics on the court and in the classroom.

Eighty of them recorded a 4.0 grade-point average (GPA) for the semester, while 33 of them, including Carson Quiros, earned a 4.0 for the academic year. Nine upperclassmen maintained cumulative 4.0 GPAs.

Quiros, who recently graduated, majored in creative writing and professional writing while playing on Carnegie Mellon's Women's Soccer team.

"It has been quite a year for our athletics program. Our student-athletes continue to demonstrate that they can compete at the highest level academically and athletically," said Director of Athletics Josh Centor. "I am grateful for the way our student-athletes represent the university, both on and off the playing fields."
