SPASH students excel in the classroom and on the court

Posted:

Stevens Point has the smartest boys and girls basketball teams in the state.  
Both Panthers squads, took home the WBCA team academic all-state honors for having the best team GPA's in Wisconsin.  
This is the first award for the lady panthers, who had a 3.78 team GPA.  The boys team had a 3.79 team GPA.  This is the second year in a row the SPASH boys have won with DC Everest as a runner up both years.  The boys team runs a motion offense on the court, a complicated scheme for most teams, but not for this panthers squad.  Boys coach Scott Anderson says having an intellectual team makes his job a lot easier.  Both coaches and all the players say there isn't a ton of pressure on the players to keep up in the classroom, they're all just good kids with a lot of motivation.
