PITTSBURGH -- The Point Park University athletic department had six sports teams named NAIA Scholar-Teams for the 2014-15 school year, as announced by the NAIA office on Wednesday (July 15).

NAIA Scholar-Teams are those that have at least a 3.0 team grade-point average on a 4.0 scale. The team GPA includes all eligible, varsity student-athletes during the year.

Leading the Pioneers' athletic department was the women's cross country team with a team GPA of 3.53. It is the third straight year that women's cross country team has either led or tied for the lead in the Pioneers' department.

Next was softball at 3.33 GPA followed by women's soccer (3.24), men's golf (3.23), women's track and field (3.20) and volleyball (3.13).
