The William & Mary men's gymnastics team earned the program's ninth College Gymnastics Association National Academic team title after posting a combined grade point average of 3.531. In addition to claiming four of the last five team titles, the Tribe's impressive overall total is more than any other program since the inception of the award in 1991.

The success continues a long-standing tradition of excellence in the classroom by Tribe men's gymnasts, as the program won the national academic team titles in 1991, 1992, 2002, 2008, 2012, 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2018, while placing second six times (1994, 2000, 2001, 2003, 2009, 2013). Additionally, W&M has finished third on four occasions (1999, 2006, 2011, 2017).

Tribe gymnasts also continue to lead the nation with more individual All-America Scholar-Athlete honors than any other program in men's gymnastics. In total, 83 Tribe gymnasts have combined to earn 215 All-American Scholar-Athlete honors.

Eleven W&M gymnasts earned first-team All-American Scholar-Athlete designation by the CGA for the 2018 season: David Allen, Jacopo Gliozzi, Spencer Schrandt, Peter Makey, Ian Creelman, Cutter Fugett, Jeremiah McReynolds, Mitchell Campbell, Jack Hasenkopf, Griffin Antle and David Watkins. Campbell earned first-team distinction all four years, increasing the number of Tribe gymnasts who have accomplished the impressive feat to 15.

Second-team All-American Scholar-Athlete designation was awarded to Nate Winneg.
