Trinity School at River Ridge, Delano, and Willmar are top MWCA Academic Teams

Every year coaches prepare for the postseason and have to limit their team roster from their full squad down to 19 guys for the team postseason from the competitive side of things. From the academic side, coaches will take those 19 guys and whittle down to the top ten members of that team from an academic standpoint as well. Coaches will then average each of those ten athletes cumulative grade point average to see if they have earned the MWCA Silver Academic award (3.0-3.49) or the MWCA Gold Academic award (3.50+).

This year over 100 teams in both Class A, AA, AAA have submitted their team’s GPA with 44 earning silver and 61 earning gold. In Class A the team from Trinity School at River Ridge took home the top honor with a 3.83 GPA. Delano took home the top honor this year in AA with a 3.83 cumulative GPA. And for the second year in a row Willmar took home both the AAA honor with a 3.89 GPA and the top team in all of Minnesota. Willmar has been the top AAA team four years in a row.

Congratulations to all the teams that will be recognized for their academics along with their athletics.
