For the Fourth Year in a row, Western Michigan Men wins the MAC’s FAR Award

WINS FACULTY ATHLETICS REPRESENTATIVE AWARD FOR THE EIGHTH TIME IN LAST THIRTEEN YEARS

CLEVELAND, Ohio – Western Michigan University men’s athletics program has been named the winner of the 2019-20 Mid-American Conference Men’s Faculty Athletics Representative (FAR) Academic Achievement Award.

The Broncos have won this annual award for the eighth time in the 13 years since the inception of the award, as well as for the fourth consecutive season. The FAR Awards are designed to recognize the Conference institution with the highest overall combination of both grade point average (GPA) and Academic Progress Rate (APR) rank by gender.  The GPA’s were based upon this past fall semester.

The Conference FAR’s worked with the Athletic Academic Advisors to compute an award that best represents the academic achievement of student-athletes in a competitive setting.  The FAR Awards are given to those institutions male and female programs with the highest overall combination of GPA and APR within the Conference.  Only MAC sponsored sports are used.

“For the fourth consecutive year, I am proud to call Kalamazoo home to the men’s FAR award,” said Kathy Beauregard, Western Michigan Director of Athletics. “The eight times we have won this award are a true testament to culture in Kalamazoo, as well as the types of student-athletes and coaches we have here.”

Western Michigan’s baseball team posted a 3.553 GPA, while the men’s soccer team had a 3.494 GPA and the Broncos’ basketball team added a 3.297 GPA.  In addition, Western Michigan had single year perfect score APR rankings of 1,000 in baseball, men’s basketball and men’s tennis.
