08.15.05 - The Women's Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA) announced its 2004-2005 Academic Top 25 Team Honor Roll for NCAA Division I, NCAA Division II, NCAA Division III, NAIA and Junior College/Community College. The awards recognize teams throughout the nation that have the highest grade point averages (GPA) for the 2004-05 season based upon nominations submitted by WBCA-member coaches.
The Huntington University women's basketball team was the lone Indiana institution to appear on the NAIA list. The Foresters were 15th with their 3.40 grade point average. It is the seventh time in nine years that the women have earned the honor. "It is an honor that reflects the type of student-athlete we try to recruit," said head coach Lori Culler. "We want players that have been successful in the classroom as well as on the basketball court during their high school career. When they arrive at HU, they already know what it takes; it's just a matter of each one maximizing their God-given talents."
Concordia (NE) University continued its strangle-hold on the top spot for the sixth year in a row with its 3.786 team gpa. Complete list of honorees
