  • Second semester hours attempted and GPA.
  • Same format applies if using the quarter system.

College head coaches who are WBCA members may nominate their teams for this award. Nominations must be submitted online and received by the deadline; no exceptions are made. The first and last names of all players on the official team roster at the start of the second semester, as well as the hours attempted and GPA for both the first and second semesters, must be submitted per the criteria.


The top 25 institutions at each collegiate level will be announced mid-summer. Team grade point averages are determined by the total number of quality points divided by the total number of hours attempted by all players on the team. In 2022, the WBCA also began recognizing all other teams with a 3.0 or better GPA.
