Solano Women’s Basketball Receives National Academic Honors

Solano Community College is very proud to announce that the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA) has named our 2004-2005 women’s basketball team as one of the top 25 national academic honor roll teams. The award recognizes teams throughout the nation that have the highest grade point averages (GPA) for the 2004-05 season based upon nominations submitted by WBCA-member coaches.

Solano holds third place in the Junior College/Community College category with a team GPA of 3.312. Head Coach Matt Borchert has long had a very strong policy of academics being the first order of business for his team. While he and his staff always wants the team to be competitive on the court that is just part of the game. The other part is having his student-athletes go on to be successful citizens that can apply the principles they learn in sport to their lives.

“We’re very happy to see these young women recognized for their commitment and discipline in the classroom. Their dedication and resolve translates to success on the court as well.” said Coach Borchert. “Many of them will be back to play for us in 2005-2006. We’re looking forward to an exciting season.”

Ventura Community College was also recognized in 8th place.
