The National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics recently announced the Scholar-Teams for the 2017-18 academic year. All 15 of the Oregon Tech athletic teams were honored with this distinction, carrying a department average of a 3.31 GPA. Eight OIT programs were ranked in the top 20 nationally for their respective sports.

For the second year in a row the Oregon Tech Women’s Golf team led all Oregon Tech programs with a 3.73 team GPA. The Oregon Tech Women’s Indoor Track Team led the nation with a 3.67 Team GPA with the men’s and women’s cross country teams coming in at No. 4 and No. 5 respectively.
