“We take academics very seriously at Rhodes,” says Coach Charlie Boehme, “I’m proud of the results our student-athletes were able to produce in the classroom this year. We have created an environment that demands success in the classroom, as well as the pool, and I cannot wait for us to continue raising the bar.”
