ATLANTA, Ga. – The Westminster College women's basketball team were recognized by the Women's Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA) for being among the nation's top women's basketball teams in the classroom in the WBCA's Academic Team Top 25.
Under the guidance of 19th-year Head Coach Rosanne Scott, the Titans earned a final grade point average (GPA) of 3.654, ranking 24th in the nation among Division III counterparts and had the highest GPA in the Presidents' Athletic Conference (PAC).
This marked the third time Westminster has earned a spot on the distinguished list since 2001-02, first since the 2014-15 season.
The WBCA Academic Top 25 recognizes NCAA Division I, II and III, NAIA and two-year college women's basketball teams across the nation that carry the highest combined GPAs inclusive of all student-athletes on their rosters for the entire season. The 2020-21 season is the 26th in which the WBCA has compiled the honor rolls.
"Congratulations to each of the teams recognized in the 2020-21 WBCA Academic Top 25," said WBCA Executive Director Danielle Donehew. "Their head coaches are to be commended for fostering an environment of excellence for their student-athletes both on the court and, more importantly, in the classroom; particularly with the additional stress this season caused by the uncertainty resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic."
