Welcome to the home of the 2011-12 Razorback Athletics Annual Report. The past academic year has been one of the most successful in our history as our more than 460 student-athletes in 19 sports excelled in competition, in the classroom and in our community. The annual report provides us an opportunity to share our progress and success as we continue to focus on fulfilling our mission of developing our student-athletes academically, athletically and socially.
In 2011-12, for the fourth consecutive year, Razorback student-athletes earned a cumulative GPA of more than 3.0 finishing the year with a 3.07 GPA. More than 80 current and former Razorback student-athletes added their names to Senior Walk as graduates of the University of Arkansas.
Fifteen of 19 sport programs advanced to post-season competition including six programs that finished in the top-10 nationally in their respective sports. The University of Arkansas finished the year 20th in the Learfield Sports Directors Cup, a season-long measure of athletic success of all Division I athletic programs. It marked the highest finish for our program in the Directors Cup in more than a decade.
In the community, Razorback student-athletes volunteered 6,052 hours for more than 108 schools, agencies and organizations. These young men and women are making a difference while proudly representing the University of Arkansas and our great state.

Thank you for allowing us to share just a few of the many success stories of our program and for your continued support of Razorback Athletics.
