Emerson Athletics is thrilled to recognize the academic achievements of our Women's basketball Team! Our Athletes strive for excellence not only on the court, but in classroom as well.
The Lions, coached by Bill Gould, took top honors in NCAA Division III with a team GPA of 3.673 as part of the 2016-17 WBCA Academic Top 25 Team Honor Roll.
The WBCA Academic Top 25 recognizes NCAA Division I, II and III; NAIA and junior/community 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 2016-17 season is the 22nd in which the WBCA has compiled the honor rolls.
"The WBCA family is committed to the student-athlete experience and celebrates these teams that have demonstrated excellence in the classroom," said WBCA Executive Director Danielle Donehew. "This year's WBCA Academic Top 25 is a powerful list of teams and their head coaches who have winning cultures that prepare their student-athletes for success in life."
