Saturday, July 21, 2012
The Calvin women’s basketball team finished as one of the top teams in Division III this past spring and now the Knights have finished as one of the top academic squads as well.
Under the direction of head coach John Ross, the Knights have received the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association Top 25 Academic Honor Roll Award. The Knights finished 11th amongst all Division III schools with a team GPA of 3.518.
The honor comes on the heels of a 2011-12 season that saw the Calvin women’s basketball team reach the quarterfinals of the NCAA III Tournament and finish with an overall record of 28-2.
Calvin was one of three MIAA institutions to receive the WBCA Academic Honor Roll award as Hope and Saint Mary’s were also so honored.
The WBCA Academic Top 25 Honor Roll annually recognizes NCAA Division I, II and III; NAIA and junior/community college institutions that carry the highest combined grade point averages inclusive of all student-athletes on their rosters for the entire season.
