The state academic team is a career award given to a highly select group of seniors who have excelled on the field and in the classroom during their high school career. To meet the on field criteria a player must at minimum been a two year varsity starter for her team. The academic criterion is determined by multiplying the player’s ACT score by her unweighted GPA (on a 4.0 point scale). The top 30 players on the academic criterion that meet the on field performance criterion make up the team. This year the academic criterion cutoff was an unweighted GPAxACT score of 115.13.
