Panthers Earn Spot on WBCA Academic Top 25 Team Honor Roll

COMPLETE LIST OF WBCA TEAM HONOR ROLLS

The Middlebury women's basketball team landed a spot on the Women's Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA) Academic Top 25 Team Honor Roll for the 2016-17 season. The Panthers finished the academic year with a team grade point average of 3.549, the 14th-highest GPA out of 434 Division III programs.

Middlebury was the only NESCAC program named to the list after concluding the season with four student-athletes having been named to the league's All-Academic team last winter. To be selected for the conference's academic list, a player must have completed one full year of college study who carry a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.40.

Middlebury tallied a 17-8 overall record last winter and finished 6-4 during their rugged conference schedule under third-year coach KJ Krasco. The 17 victories last winter were the most for the program since the 2001-02 season.

The WBCA Academic Top 25 annually recognizes NCAA Division I, II and III; NAIA; and junior/community college women's basketball teams across the nation that carry the highest combined grade point average (GPA) 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.
