SAINT PAUL, Minn. – The Macalester College softball team was named an Easton/NFCA Top 10 Academic Team for achieving one of the 10 highest team grade-point averages among NCAA Division III institutions during the 2016-17 academic year, the National Fastpitch Coaches Association announced today. 

The Scots, coached by Jody Gabriel, collectively compiled a team GPA of 3.600 to rank ninth among all Division III softball programs. The academic performance also ranks first in the MIAC, followed by Carleton (3.453) in 45th.

The NFCA recognizes teams with the top 10 GPAs across seven membership groups, including NCAA Divisions I, II and III, NAIA, junior college, high school unweighted and high school weighted. Next week the NFCA will announce the NFCA Scholar-Athletes, who are softball student-athletes with cumulative GPAs of 3.5 or higher.
