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 53 teams received the silver plaque and another 57 earned the gold plaque.
