The Women's Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA) recently announced their Academic Top 25 Team Honor Rolls for the 2012-13 season and CMS was ninth overall in Division III (there are 438 women's basketball teams in the division) with a 3.533 team GPA. CMS was the only member of the SCIAC to make the honor roll.
A team's GPA is calculated by dividing the total number of quality points earned by the total number of 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 a WBCA-member head coach. A team must have a 3.000 or better GPA to be nominated.
