Plainview-Elgin-Millville Paces the Entire Field for MWCA State Academic Team Championship

Hastings and Wabasso/Red Rock Central Win Respective Classes

Class AA Academic Champion, Plainview-Elgin-Millville, had an impressive 3.86 team grade point average to lead all 94 teams that applied for the MN Wrestling Coaches’ Association Team Academic Award in 2015. The next highest grade point average was submitted by Hastings. The Class AAA Champion Raiders turned in a 3.82 g.p.a. Wabasso/Red Rock Central was a repeat champion for Class A with 3.80 grade point average. Congratulations to all three teams.

Each year the MWCA recognizes teams that have a team grade point average of 3.0 or better. Teams take the top 10 grade point averages (g.p.a.) from their 19-man section team roster to submit on their application for the award. Teams that have a 3.0-3.49 team g.p.a. receive a silver plaque, while teams with a 3.50-4.00 g.p.a. earn a gold plaque. This year 42 teams received the silver plaque and another 52 earned the gold plaque. The 94 teams earning plaques in 2015 falls short of the record 103 teams in 2013. Sixteen of the twenty-four teams that qualified for the state tournament earned an academic team plaque.
