ST. LOUIS – [NAIA SCHOLAR TEAMS] The National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics announced the teams that had earned Scholar Team status for the 2016-17 season on Tuesday and Missouri Baptist was well represented. Nine Spartan teams claimed the distinction after putting together a great team effort in the classroom. 

In order to be considered an NAIA Scholar Team, all members of the team's grade point average (GPA) are factored into the equation as the team must have an average of a 3.0 on a 4.0 scale.

Leading the pack for Missouri Baptist was Women's Cross-Country with a team GPA of 3.71. Both Men's and Women's Basketball along with Men's and Women's Soccer earned the distinction for both genders of the sport while Spartan Softball, Women Indoor and Outdoor Track and Field and Volleyball rounded out the group.
