With a Fall semester featuring berths in the national championship games in both football and men’s soccer and Spring ACC championships in men’s golf and baseball, the Tigers recorded their highest finish in the Learfield Director’s Cup in a decade. In the classroom, 78 student-athletes earned degrees and, while competing for national titles, both football and men’s soccer recorded record GPAs.
