Gencon supports athletics in the local communityJuly 24, 2019
On behalf of NM State Athletics, thank you for your support of the Aggie Athletic Club. Your contribution makes a vital and direct impact toward the success of our 400 student–athletes in the classroom and in competition.
In addition, thank you for helping the Aggie Athletic Club reach the 1,000–member mark for the first time in history. This is a tremendous increase since our athletic administration arrived, up from just 671 members during the 2014–15 campaign and this could not have been accomplished without your support. In the classroom, 58% of our Aggie student–athletes earned a GPA of 3.0 or better for the Fall 2018 semester. Furthermore, 39 student–athletes recorded a perfect 4.0 GPA and for 27 consecutive semesters (13 %2 years), all 16 sports‘ cumulative grade point average combined is above a 3.0!
Competitively, the 2018–19 sports season was a great success as NM State took home nine Western Athletic Conference regular season or conference tournament championships. Both the men‘s and women‘s basketball teams won regular season and conference tournament titles, earning a berth to their respective NCAA Tournaments. Volleyball finished with a 24–8 record winning both championships on their way to the NCAA Tournament and both the women‘s golf and women‘s tennis programs won their respective leagues to earn their place in the NCAA Tournament field. On the diamond, Aggie baseball took home the WAC regular season championship on the way to a 38–17 record.
We appreciate your support of Aggie Athletics and the Aggie Athletic Club as the accomplishments above would not be possible without your support. As always, I encourage you to build a relationship with our staff and if we can assist you in any way.
