The annual RMAC Summit Award is presented to the student-athlete with the highest cumulative grade-point average participating at the final site for each of the RMAC’s championships. All GPAs are based on a straight grading scale to ensure consistency among institutions. Any tie is broken by the number of credits completed.

Fowler (Saratoga Springs, Utah/Westlake HS), who carries a 4.00 GPA as a biomedical science major, is slated to compete in the 50 yard, 100 yard and 200 yard freestyle events at this week’s RMAC meet.

To be eligible for the award, student-athletes must be a sophomore or above who participated in their sport for at least two years with their school. They must be an active member of the team, traveling and competing at the championship. Graduate students are not eligible.
