The Winona State University baseball team earned the 2019-20 American Baseball Coaches Association (ABCA) Team Academic Excellence Award, as announced recently.
For a program to earn the annual honor, the team must have a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale during the 2019-20 academic year and the head coach must be a member of the ABCA. The American Baseball Coaches Association has a long tradition of recognizing the achievements of baseball coaches and student-athletes.
Warrior baseball has earned the ABCA Team Academic Excellence Award every year since 2015-16, joining Northern State (S.D.) University as one of only two Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference (NSIC) teams to have been honored in each of the past five seasons. The 2019-20 ABCA Team Academic Excellence Award was earned by over 400 baseball programs; Winona State was one of 55 NCAA Division II teams to claim the award this year.
Fourteen individual Warrior baseball student-athletes earned NSIC All-Academic Honors, as announced earlier this spring.
