The Faculty Athletic Representatives of the MIAA member colleges present the MIAA Team GPA Award every year. This award recognizes conference athletic teams for performance in the classroom of a 3.3 cumulative GPA or better (on a 4.0 scale). During the recently completed 2012-13 school year, a record 11 of Calvin’s athletic teams achieved this distinction.Seven of Calvin’s women’s teams received the MIAA Team GPA Award while four of the men’s teams also achieved the feat. Calvin’s teams receiving the honor are as follows; women’s cross country, women’s volleyball, women’s tennis, women’s basketball, men’s cross country, women’s soccer, women’s track and field, men’s tennis, women’s swimming and diving, men’s golf and men’s basketball.

Under the direction of Brian Diemer, the women’s cross country team topped the list of Calvin teams, earning a cumulative grade point average of 3.537.
