Frazee-Vergas Schools Activities Director Dave Trautman said he's always heard that athletes do better academically than non-athletes.

"It holds true here, too," he said.

In the Frazee district, senior female athletes have a grade point average of 3.47. Non-athlete female students have a GPA of 3.03.
