UCLA Athletic Academic Honors virtually during Welcome Back event

The UCLA Athletics teams were honored in the annual (virtual) Welcome Back event

The UCLA Bruins have made sure to honor their athletic teams this offseason and none more noteworthy than during their recent ‘Welcome Back’ event, held virtually, on the day before the fall quarter began.

The Bruins athletics account on social media announced the big winners from the event, naming the following teams with the following superlatives:

UCLA Men’s Soccer — Most Improved GPA

UCLA Men’s Basketball — Most Improved GPA

UCLA Women’s Tennis — Highest GPA

UCLA Women’s Cross Country — Highest GPA

This came on the night ahead of the beginning of the fall quarter, a day in which the UCLA athletics team on social media also took the time to wish you all a happy first day of classes.

It’s certainly a unique time to be a college student let alone a student-athlete and the perseverance of all these athletes on (and off) campus will absolutely be tested later this fall when athletics return to the field and courts near you.

Congratulations to the teams of young men and young women who were honored during the Welcome Back event. May you continue to thrive this quarter.

Go Bruins!
