Another University of Northern Colorado sports team received academic honors this week.
The UNC women’s basketball team was part of the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association 2021-22 Academic Top 25 Team Honor Roll. It was No. 10 in Division I.
Teams must achieve a 3.0 grade point average for the academic year. The Bears had a combined GPA of 3.66 last year.
This is the ninth time UNC has earned a spot on the list and the first time under head coach Kristen Mattio. It is divided for the second highest rank. The last time UNC was recognized was 2017-18. The best season was 2013/14 when the team was number 3.
The Bears were the only Big Sky team on the top 25 list. South Dakota State led the Division I teams with a 3.80 GPA.
UNC will begin its second season under Mattio this fall. It has a handful of returning players, including Hannah Simental, who was an All-Big Sky selection on the court and in the classroom.
