(Neb.)-CSC Women’s Basketball Team Shines Academically

CHADRON – For the second consecutive year, the Chadron State College women’s basketball team has been honored by the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association for having the second-highest grade point average in Division II, finishing the academic year with a GPA of 3.644.
In fact, the CSC women posted the fourth-highest GPA in all of the WBCA’s five divisions – Divisions I, II and III, NAIA and Junior College..
The Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference is well represented on the WBCA Academic Top 25 with three teams earning distinction. Fort Lewis is atop the standings with a 3.715, Chadron State is second and Regis University is 22nd with 3.451.
The GPAs are calculated by dividing the number of quality points earned by each student-athlete on an institution’s roster in the given academic terms by the total number of hours earned by the team.. Nominations were submitted by WBCA-member head coaches.
Since becoming the Chadron State College women’s basketball coach in the summer of 2008, Tim Connealy has asked his players to be role models in the classroom. That tradition began last year when the Eagles tallied a team GPA of 3.641, which put them on the WBCA Academic Top 25 for the first time in school history.
“I was excited last season when we finished second and I am elated once again,” Connealy said. “I am incredibly proud of all the hard work the girls put in the classroom.
“Certainly, this is a credit to our team and the program we’re cultivating, but we also have a wonderful support system at the college, great professors and wonderful tutors.”
In addition, Wayne State College, which is a member of the Nebraska State College System with Chadron State, finished 21st with a GPA of 3.452.
