Florida Gulf Coast, Jacksonville, North Florida and USC Upstate were also honored by the NSCAA, but the Lady Bisons had the highest team GPA among the A-Sun teams with a mark of 3.69, ahead of the Eagles (3.52), Dolphins (3.36), Ospreys (3.35) and Spartans (3.47).
A total of 859 teams were recognized by the NSCAA for having a GPA of 3.0 or higher, including 554 women’s teams.
