The War Hawks were among 250 universities across all collegiate levels recognized with GCAA Team Academic Awards, which is given to programs with a 3.0 grade point average. Additionally, McMurry was one of 15 from NCAA Division III with a 3.5 GPA or above.
Senior Michael Hunt was a key contributor to this honor, as he earned CoSIDA Academic All-District honors, GCAA All-American Scholar honors, the American Southwest Conference Medal of Honor and Winter/Spring Academic All-ASC honors.
