40 Yellow Jackets Inducted Into Chi Alpha Sigma

THE FLATS – Georgia Tech athletics announced 40 Yellow Jackets were welcomed into Chi Alpha Sigma during the 2019-20 academic year. The National College Athlete Honor Society overall inducted 7,520 student-athletes this past academic year.

Chi Alpha Sigma is the first and only national scholar-athlete society to honor four-year collegiate student-athletes who have excelled in both the classroom and in athletic competition. Chi Alpha Sigma recognizes college student-athletes who receive a varsity letter in their sport, achieve junior academic standing or higher after their fifth full-time semester, and earn a 3.4 or higher cumulative grade point average. Annually, the organization inducts student-athletes that meet the above criteria from four-year institutions across all divisions of the NCAA, NAIA, NCCAA, and USCAA.

Ten Georgia Tech teams placed student-athletes in the honor society with baseball and women’s swimming and diving leading the way with eight student-athletes each. Women’s track and field/cross country and men’s swimming and diving each had five student-athletes join the society. Football and women’s basketball placed three student-athletes each, followed by men’s tennis, men’s track and field/cross country, softball and volleyball each having two student-athletes.

Tech student-athletes overcame the challenges of moving to a virtual learning model midway through the 2020 spring semester, posting a record 3.23 mean grade point average for the semester. Twelve of Tech’s 13 sports had team GPAs of 3.0 or higher for the spring semester.
