JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Jacksonville University held their annual athletics banquet tonight honoring 19 teams that have won 17 championships so far this year.

Perhaps more impressive is the fact that the Dolphins had a collective GPA of 3.3 for the first semester and 15 teams were over 3.0.

JU Chiefs Athletics Officer Dr. Donnie Horner calls the night a celebration of athletics and academics.

"Great group of kids," Horner said. "We've won 17 championships so far this year not to mention the championships they've won in the classroom."
