Hockey leads charge in academics 

20 members of the Ferris hockey team were named to the WCHA All-Academic Team after securing grade point averages higher than 3.00 for the previous two semesters. Ferris had more members than any other team in the WCHA. 

12 of those 20 members also made the WCHA Scholar-Athlete list, by reaching a 3.5 grade point average or higher for at least a year of residency at the University. While the Bulldogs normally find themselves towards the top of the conference on the ice, it’s clear that Ferris also leads in the classroom. 

Indoor Track and Field Championships 

A pair of Bulldogs competed in the 2018 Division II Indoor Track and Field Championships held in Pittsburg, Kan. The two-day event hosted the best athletes from Division II in their respective categories. 

Ferris junior Cody Stilwell competed on opening day of the tournament, finishing 11th in the men’s weight throw after throwing 19.27 meters. Stilwell previously broke a school record this season with a throw of 20.84 meters. Meanwhile, Ferris senior Jon Cok finished tied for 13th in the men’s high jump event.
