ATLANTA, Georgia - The Women's Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA) announced the 2018-19 Academic Top 25 Team Honor Rolls for all three NCAA divisions and NAIA on Tuesday (July 23) afternoon.
Walsh was ranked 23rd in the Division II Team Honor Roll for the 2018-19 school year. The Cavaliers had a cumulative team GPA of 3.558 under head coach Kate Bruce. When the G-MAC Academic All-Conference teams were released, 12 Cavaliers were on the list.
Three G-MAC schools were ranked as Tiffin (3.809) and Findlay (3.725) were slotted first and fifth, respectively.
The WBCA Academic Top 25 recognizes NCAA Division I, II and III, NAIA and two-year GPAs inclusive of all student-athletes on their rosters for the entire season. The 2018-19 season is the 24th in which the WBCA has compiled the honor rolls.
A team's GPA is calculated by dividing the total number of quality points (A=4, B=3, C=2, D=1, F=0) earned by the total number of academic hours attempted by all team members in the academic terms (semesters or quarters) that the season spans. Weighted grades are converted to a 4.0 scale. The GPAs are rounded to the nearest thousandth of a point. Teams are nominated for the honor by the WBCA member head coach. A team must have a 3.000 or better GPA to be nominated.
Founded in 1981, the Women's Basketball Coaches Association is the professional association for coaches of women's and girls' basketball at all levels of competition. The WBCA offers educational resources that coaches need to help make themselves better leaders, teachers and mentors to their players; provides opportunities for coaches to connect with peers in the profession; serves as the unifying voice of a diverse community of coaches to those organizations that control the game; and celebrates those coaches, players and other individuals who excel each year and contribute to the advancement of the sport.
